Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian a hand-painted Hermes Birkin ($16,000) bag for Christmas. That actually sounds like a great idea until you see it. The designer bag was painted by George Condo, the same guy who did the art for Kanye’s fifth studio album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
One of George Condo’s paintings sold for $1.3 million last year, so if you’re wondering, this guy is regarded as legit. Now, the artwork for that album was fantastic because it played up Kanye’s flaws and darkest desires, however Kim isn’t so brooding and the artwork is um . . . odd. A big breasted Kim hanging out with a bunch of demons? It just looks sloppy and could even be construed as a little mean as in, “This is what you think of your wife?”
I am all for weird artsy shit but this image would be better served hanging on a wall and not hanging on Kim Kardashinan’s arm. Now she has to pretend she likes this monstrosity. I mean, after all, it’s the thought that counts and it is Hermes. But it’s just so wrong. So, so wrong.
