Kim Kardashian's fiance, Kanye West, just synthesized high fashion with fine art, giving his girl a hand-painted Birkin handbag for Christmas.
Well, what else do you get the girl who appears to have everything and then some?
But the lofty Hermes satchel itself isn't the only rarity, the "Yeezus" rapper commissioned artist George Condo to paint the one-of-a-kind handbag with a surrealist portrait of nude subjects -- at least four of them -- depicted with his signature monstrous faces.
Art is fashion and fashion is art after all.
The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" starlet, 33, shared a photo of the decadent bag on Instagram on Thursday, captioning it with information-laden hashtags: "#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin #OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy"
West, 36, has collaborated with the American contemporary artist in the past, commissioning him to paint five different album covers for West's 2010 album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy."
Since they started dating, the rant-inclined recording artist, who also dabbles in design, has elevated Kardashian's style, influencing her to wear more couture than commercial looks.
A makeup free Kardashian was spotted toting the oversized bag this week while out shopping with her fiance in Los Angeles. The fashionista wore an all-white outfit and cream-colored coat to ensure that the bag popped on the palette.
Earlier this week, Kardashian shared more fashion-forward swag with her Instagram followers. The first-time mom posted a series of high-end designer duds given to her daughter with West, North, from several designers.
Yes, we've officially seen more photos of Nori's outfits than of her. Back in October, Kardashian similarly touted her baby girl's designer wardrobe following Paris Fashion Week.
We get it, it's hard to resist the cuteness of teeny-tiny baby clothes, but come on, this is getting excessive.
This time, their 6-month-old baby girl received light pink booties and matching checkered blanket from Michael Coste at Hermes...
Feline-faced loafers from Charlotte Olympia to "help start her shoe collection" ...
Two frilly rompers and a sweater from Stella McCartney. (Seriously, are those dry clean-only? Because that's not OK.)
And two pairs of shoes from West's pal Giuseppe Zanotti: A pair of bejeweled flats and a pair of fringed, lace-up boots.
Like mother (and father) like daughter.
