Kim Kardashian Debuts Hermès Bag Painted by Baby North

Oh yes, you read that correctly. Kim Kardashian recently became the proud recipient of an Hermès Herbag that was lovingly (and intentionally) hand-painted by her daughter North. This “customized” Herbag is, of course, a gift from Kanye. Here’s the happy couple walking into a meeting together in LA, with Kim’s new bag/North’s handiwork on full display.

This is Kim’s second hand-painted Hermès bag from Kanye; the first was an Haut A Courroies customized by artist George Condo that Kanye gave Kim for Christmas last year. Reactions to Kim’s new bag will be fiercely divided between people who believe that babies can do no wrong, even when finger-painting five figure handbags, and people who absolutely don’t.

They may be vulgar and boring but they’re further in life than you’ll ever be. Even that bag is. So please everybody shut up with the annoying “stop posting the kardashians” posts because you(the haters) are the reason they get coverage.

Would a parent let a child smear paint on an expensive rug or other article in the name of art? It is always lovely when children do artwork for their parents. However, until children understand the actual concept of drawing and painting and can conceive ideas independently, they should stick to drawing on paper. For that do happen, they would have to be much older than North West. Here it just looks like a tacky gesture that is meant to show off wealth in a subversive way. I think hand prints in clay would have been a sweeter gesture.

Yes. Some parents, with money to replace those articles, would. You see, when you value your child’s creativeness in the realm of having money to replace those things, it’s okay. She understands the concepts of art: Not all art needs to be conceptualized, beautiful pieces. If a piece of abstract art that is literally four holes on a piece of canvas can sell for thousands, then a little girl with rich parents can smear paint on mommy’s bag to make her a present. A tacky gesture is commenting on how a child must conceptualize to make a gift.

Even “a piece of abstract art that is literally four holes on a piece of canvas” is based on some concept. I am all for nourishing one’s child’s creativeness, but I still think
North West’s artistic expression should have been shown on something else. I will stand by my assertion that this comes of as tacky.

Judging by the tone of your comments, it seems you have a huge chip on your shoulder. I think you have taken every comment as a personal affront to yourself regardless of the tone of the writer. It seems like your sole purpose was to hurl personal insults on other commenters. I would have preferred if you had delved further into to you misogyny claims.

Read the rest of the comments. Read what everyone consistently has to say about this woman while only having a very rudimentary grasp on what her life is, who she is, and what she is about. I don’t necessarily think she’s a person who is perfect, but it’s sickening to see so many attempting to justify “opinions” that she’s “trashy”. And frankly, hell yeah, I’m going to hurl insults at these people who dehumanize a woman for reasons that are frankly stupid. “She has a sex tape!! She’s a whore!” Do people not understand that even if she was a saint, somebody, somewhere would label her a whore? Do they not understand how many sex workers are murdered for the reasons they’re using to spew vitrol at a woman they do not know?

An opinion stops being an opinion when it actively plays into systematic oppression and murder. End of story. If you’re sitting back and saying it’s fine to hate a woman because of those reasons, then you’re complicit in misogyny. There’s no excuse.

She was just saying she don’t like her taste, she don’t like her bag (you know that do not be mysogine doesn’t mean that you must like and agreed with every single thing Kim Kardashian is doing right ?)

Sorry, I’m not going to relax, and no, women fight everywhere for women. It’s not your job to tell me when and where to fight, nor is it your job to gas light me and tell me my feminism is irrelevant, when, in fact, yours is.

You see, by saying that this form of feminism isn’t the same as physical fighting is a. Exploitative of those women in those countries and frankly, racist, colonialist and imperialist and b. ableist, classist, and ignorant as hell as you erase disabled feminist bloggers who cannot protest in the streets, or live in areas where those things are inaccessible, or hell, those women who are stuck in abusive relationships and home lives where they cannot make their voices heard anywhere else. Where they cannot exist as they wish to because they are bound to their oppressors.

You cannot call yourself a feminist if you’re actively exploiting women as part of an argument wherein you tell another feminist their being too loud, need to relax, need to calm down, need to shut up when they speak about how people attack women they do not know over her body, her choices, her work, the clothes she wears, the man she married, her family, her sex life, et al ad nauseum.

You can have an opinion about womens clothing and accessories without reverting to talking about what a cheap, tacky person she is. This is not a hard thing to grasp. Really. Stop talking shit about her body, her personality, and start commenting on the garments themselves without relating them to her body. I.E. I dislike that bag. Really. It’s that simple. “I don’t like that skirt.” Not “Ugh I hate her I don’t like that skirt or her ass blah, blah blah,” “Oh my god that top makes her look like a hooker!” Those are opinions that attack her person. Not her clothes. The clothes are an excuse to verbally harm her.

In support of Emily, I liked this article. It takes the phenomenon of colleagues putting up their child’s terrible/adorable paper artwork in their cubicles to the extreme. And it would be an amazing gift to North when she turns 18/21.

I can’t down-vote comments without login in so I’ll guess this should have to do:
I like it, I think the colors actually look nice, which isn’t easy as it might have ended up as a big brown blur, the bag itself would have been utterly boring without it, imho. They can do whatever they want with their money, God knows they can spare the cost of the bag anyways, so why the hell not? At least it’s something she can give use to and have around, not like some hand print in clay, way to think outside the box with that one…

She made that sex tape for herself. it was stolen, and exploited. But hey, of course you’d target her for having her sex tape leaked, but when J.Law’s nudes were leaked it was a cryin’ shame and a sex crime against her and woowoowoo. Kim K.’s sex tape gets leaked, someone actively tries to market it, without her consent, she takes it back, makes money off of it from all the creepy fucks who bought it, and she’s virulently hated across the internet. Do you think sex work isn’t a legitimate form of work? Do you think you have the rights to hate, nay, DEHUMANIZE sex workers by calling us stupid when we’re exploited? Do you think people who have their nudes, sex tapes, ect. leaked on the internet deserve the backlash, the sex shaming, the misogyny they get? If you do, Kim isn’t the bad person here. You are.

Your excuses for hating her are BORING. Stop. Find a legit reason, like, say, her being a racist, or a homophobe, or a misogynist, or a transphobe, then come back.

She may be fake according to you but her bag isn’t and that is all that matters on this blog. It’s PURSE-blog, it is about the handbags and thats it. She is a celeb that has great bags that are iconic so she does deserve a place on this blog even if she isn’t loved by a lot of people. The main priority is the handbags. And Kim’s collection of handbags is probably the best I’ve ever seen. The so-black Birkin and the Balenciagas, and the Celine croc phantoms are stellar handbags!

This herbag is really cute and I love the idea. Totally adorbs!

Looking at the bag from afar, it actually looks kinda cute.

What gets me the most with this post is the people saying PB shouldn’t feature her or her family, who made you judge??!!!! Yes, you don’t have to agree with some things she does ( I don’t a lot of times), or how she spends her money or how she lives her life, but to day in day out, call someone trash and all kinds of hideous names is just unnecessary.

Any irritation over our Kardashian coverage can be directed at me; I’m the one who assigns these posts. That being said, coverage of the Kardashians is extremely and consistently popular based on how readers interact with posts about them versus posts about other celebrities, so while it may not fit your personal taste, there is certainly a huge interest in Kim and her family overall. The best way to discourage us (and any other website) from covering things you don’t like or aren’t interested in is not to click on the posts! That sends the clearest message that can be sent to people planning editorial coverage on any site.

Also I think this bag is really cute and I’m generally in favor of making the things you buy more personal or meaningful in whatever way suits you.

I admire this site and so much of what you (PB team) do. You write well. You interact with your readers. You keep us updated on new collections and trends. You let us into your lives and your personal collections and purchasing decisions in a way that’s really enjoyable and fun.

This comment from Amanda is the definition of “selling out.” Merriam Webster defines selling out as “to betray one’s cause or associates especially for personal gain.” Wikipedia defines it as “the compromising of integrity, morality, authenticity or principles in exchange for personal gain, such as money.” We all know selling out means doing what’s going to make you popular instead of what you’re really about.

Apparently creating posts that drive traffic is a higher priority than irritating your loyal readers. Look at the comments and the likes on those comments. At the time I’m writing, 41 likes on Amanda’s post and 80 on Canuck65’s post pleading to stop posting about them. TWICE AS MANY of your readers agree with the statement that the Kardashian family members are “boring, vulgar and I could not care less about them or their bags” than those who agree with you to keep posting.

Please don’t sell us out to drive traffic. Please don’t betray us with this garbage just because its more popular and profitable. I empathize that as a business it is extremely difficult to choose between (selling out for) popularity and profits or remaining loyal and authentic to your audience without appealing to the masses. There IS a market out there for a tasteful and well-written blog about purses. It might be smaller than the pool of Kardashian fans, but we exist.

Oh man! Enough already, dammit. Amanda did not ask North to doodle on the bag and beg Kim to strut out to a meeting with the bag. Kim did this herself and the photo agency captured it and Amanda RIGHTFULLY identified it as being news worth and decided to do a post on it. (A very popular one at that). What exactly is the issue here? Everyone knows Hermes is extremely hotly debated on PB and is a popular favorite, the fact that Kim stepped out with one looking desecrated (as some feel it is), of course that’s gonna be hot news, duh! Your last paragraph is just laughable to say the least. I can’t even deal anymore.

I will never understand why some people so passionately hate on the Kardashians. Personal opinions of what constitute a “real career” aside, they are freaking geniuses if you ask me. They built an empire and are living their lives the way they want to despite what anyone says/will continue to say about them. Laughing all the way to the bank… And let’s be honest, people love to hate her out of sheer jealousy over what she has access to and hate how she got to where she is. This is life people! Let’s stop the hate for no reason at all. If you don’t like it then don’t read it/view it/waste your time on it.

That being said, she can do whatever the heck she wants with her belongings. Who gives a crap if it’s Hermes or friggin Walmart. It’s her stuff! Why do people feel the need to judge? Is the fact that her daughter painted over a herbag hurting anyone? No? Let’s move on.

Yes, place all of that on a brown woman who happens to have money she garnered from her sex tape being exploited. It’s not wasteful, she’s using the bag, it’s special to her, but I mean… why understand that when you can put women down instead of uplifting them, especially women of color. You have no idea what this woman does in terms of philanthropy. You have no fucking clue. She could be privately giving boatloads of money to various charities, but because she’s “trashy”, because she doesn’t stick her nose up in the air and act like an entitled ass, it’s okay to make assumptions about her personality, her humanity. I see you.

P.S. Before crying about how she’s got “first world problems”, iirc her family dealt with the trauma that came with the Armenian genocide. Ring any bells? You’re entitled to your opinion, but others are allowed to call you out on it if it’s a shitty opinion. Just sayin’.

It’s not Kim’s job to fix poverty or sickness, the right to health, education, a decent standard of living and so on are duties for the state to fulfill, not celebrities. She works for her money, whether you like it or not, and has a right to do whatever she chooses with it, besides this clearly has a sentimental value, it´s hardly the most fragrant desplay of wealth you can accuse her of…

I guess if you don’t believe that you were placed on G-d’s green earth to make it a better place than its ok to spend at will on every frivolity under the sun. And placing the burden of doing charity and social well fare squarely on the government shoulders has never been a good idea. Individuals DO also have an obligation to their fellow man especially if they are gifted with wealth. Of course that is just my opinion which I am entirely entitled to.

You are not going to fix poverty with charity or throwing money at the problem, it needs to be a state policy, otherwise you are attacking the consequences of the problem instead of its causes, so, no well meaning individual will change such huge issues by themselves. The moral implications or upper class guilt or whatever are for her to consider and not for us to judge

When Angelina Jolie has her kids paint all over her wedding dress, she’s praised. When Kim K has her daughter paint all over her hermes, she’s ridiculed. Isn’t a wedding dress more “sacred” than a bag anyway?

I don’t care, either way. I do think the bag looks slightly better than that wedding dress though. Jolie and Kardashians are both “MAKING STATEMENTS”. We’re the suckers for continuously caring.

With so many “new rich” people able to afford Hermes, it does lose a bit of it’s old world panache and glamour. Unfortunately a lot of trashy, new rich people will buy Hermes because it is a status symbol to show off excessive wealth. It no longer signifies the understated elegance of wealthy days of yore.

Hmmm… looks better than the “art” from the “artist” who decorated (defiled?) her birkin! Trash… proves money doesn’t equate taste.

Sooo… if your child made something for you, you’d think it was trash? P sure the only thing that belongs in the garbage is your opinion. Just sayin’.

I find myself drawn to glamour and artistic expression. Figures since I am a shoe designer and an artist myself. I love this personalization of this bag. The Kardashians don’t matter so much to me beyond what clothes, accessories, makeup and hairdos they are sporting. But I will also be scrutinizing any of you as well should you be gracing my screen endlessly with fashion drama like they do. Like it or not the Kardashians in all their incarnations from the baby on have captured the imagination of all the heavy hitters in the industry and they get our eyeballs. That means huge bucks for them and the brands they interact with. More power to them. All we have to do is ignore them but we can’t.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but this is a purse blog. I don’t really see what a person’s character has to do with their bag collection. You don’t like this purse -completely acceptable (I personally am not a fan of this bag as well nor do I care about Kim), but why the extra unnecessary hate? You guys are acting like she kicked your dog or something.

Please no more Kardashians in purseblog and her unfortunate spouse, they appear to have no respect for the craftsmanship or the art of one the most coveted handbags ever made . Shame on them !

The HerBag is a four-figure, not a five figure bag right 😛
Makes it ever so slightly more bearable as a canvas.

The bag’s adorable. Not five figures or anything close, though, right? I thought a Herbag was like $2k.

I really actually love this! the colors are beautiful, it’s her bag, and it’s from her child. You don’t have to like it, I’m p sure she doesn’t give a rats ass, because it’s special and important to her.

I don’t care for the Kardashians, but I guess they are genius, by evoking all kinds of emotions from people and making money out of it. Btw I like the colors and baby’s artwork on the bag.

North is their child. If they choose to let her finger paint and expensive bag, while exercising her artistic side, so what. These people are wealthy and can afford to let their child do such things. I’m sure North isn’t the only child of wealthy parents who has done the same and more, per play time. Certainly the bag is expensive, but we are not asked to pay for it. It’s really their choice and none of our business. I’m sure their are many people that other people feel are not using correct techniques in their child rearing, but none the less, it’s not our business. In my opinion, it’s just another excuse to bash people, who don’t even know you exist, and could care less about what your opinion is of their lives.

What i was wondering is does an original fine hand painted design on a well known designer bag lessen the value of the handbag? I hand paint small design accents on leather purses and i was wondering about this aspect..if designer purses should simply be resold with no artwork..
