Kanye West's Christmas Gifts Are Just What You'd Expect

In a word: challenging.

This article originally appeared on Cosmopolitan.com


After (likely fake) news of his plan to give Kim Kardashian her likeness rendered in a classic Warholian screenprint leaked last month, Kanye West had to improvise. Luckily, he's a lateral thinker and found some new and equally questionable artwork to gift her for Christmas. Thank goodness for that. Kim is now the proud owner of a new and unique Hermès Birkin handbag, a bag that features the work of artist George Condo — naked ladies, green face paint, nipples akimbo. (Condo also painted artwork for Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.) As a one-off, the bag is priceless in every sense of the word, but for comparison's sake, a Hermès Birkin this size retails for $16,000. 

The Christmas morning "oh, you shouldn't have" punch line from Kim is an obvious one — too obvious perhaps. In fact, it's best left to Instagram user llondon26, commenting after Kim shared a gallery-esque photo of her Birkin: "Now does he get why Louis Vuitton didn't wanna hear from him?" Wrap that snark up and serve it with a bow please, because it's perfect.
