Remember last Christmas, when Kanye West's big-ticket gift to then-fiancée Kim was an Hermès Birkin with vaguely terrifying naked ladies painted on it? No? Let us jog your memory:

Now, that illustration was actually created by renowned contemporary artist George Condo. And really, how do you one-up something like that? Well, for Kim's birthday last week, Kanye attempted to do just that—by recruiting his own child as artiste.
"Kanye had a box [with an Hermès purse in it] and I opened it up and it was all painted really cool and on my computer was this message that said 'Play' and it was a video of my daughter sitting outside painting the purse," Kim revealed to Us Weekly. "I had thought it was this new artist who had painted this purse [but] it was my daughter. It was amazing." Amazing. Many parents spend their days preventing their toddlers from scribbling on things they shouldn't, but this is North West. The child who sat front row during Paris Fashion Week. Who was given Coachella for her first birthday. Who has a distaste for pink and prefers couture Givenchy lace over onesies. This is not a cutesy baby gift, but the beginning of her design career.
For the moment, let's brush aside the emerging trend apparent of kids drawing on very expensive clothing (Angelina Jolie's wedding dress, anyone?), and focus on the here and now: We have yet to see photographic evidence of North's design (though we're sure it'll hit Instagram in 3,2,1...), BUT! After taking the artistic abilities of all the toddlers we know under painstaking consideration, this is our very scientific rendering of what we think it might look like:
All jokes aside, we're really itching to see this bag. After all, if North's own mother mistook her for some cool new It artist, the 16-month-old must be a damn prodigy.
