Hand-painted by artist George Condo, who also did the artwork for ‘Ye’s ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ album, Kim’s Birkin bag features several nude images, some with monster-like features.

Despite its undoubtedly high price tag, many fashionistas are rolling their eyes about the ostentatious nature of the handbag.
“Honestly, the funniest thing about this whole thing isn’t the fact that Kim likely had no idea who Condo was until, like, a second ago,” mused Stylecaster, while GQ noted, “After all, isn’t it a bit ironic that Kim Kardashian is a reality television star, but Condo’s art style is something he calls ‘Artificial Realism?'”
Even Kim’s fans were ruthless on Instagram with comments like, “It’s horrible,” and “I thought they [the images] were all her. Lmao!!!”
Kim has been a fan of Hermes’ pricy handbags for some time. She was notably spotted rocking a $30,000 purse from the line — yes, $30,000 — and using it as a diaper bag for baby North West earlier this year.
