It seems as though Kanye West‘s recent advent to Twitter has been mighty controversial – some people think he’s hysterical, some people think he tweets too much, and still others have yet to get over that whole Taylor Swift thing. I find myself residing firmly in the first group, and the only thing that surprises me in the least about his account is that he hasn’t had one all along. Twitter was made for Kanye West.

In between telling us that he jogs in Lanvin and imploring us to check out his “credenza game,” Yeezy actually managed to tweet a picture that you guys might be interested in – the vintage Hermes travel bag above. The handle looks a bit worse for the wear, but I’m digging the distressing on the rest of the bag and how aged the leather is. If you have any information on the name of this model or the year it might have been made, let us know in the contents – Kanye, naturally, was short on details.

      • Marissa Cooper

        Getting defensive aren’t we?

        What Kayne did was wrong, humiliating her (and himself too actually) in public is just rude and wrong. Period.

      • Jess

        Yes I Am “Marissa” Because For Months Now Ive Had To Listen To People You Like Attack Him For Telling The Truth!
        The Whole Entire World Wants To Nuzzle Taylor Swift, Because She “Got Her Feelings Hurt” (Awww Poor Taylor-Ha!, Yeah Right!) In The Industry That Shes In, She Better Build A Tough Skin, And Quick! She Went On Every Single Day Time Talk Show In America Looking For The Sympathy Vote, She Wanted Everyone In America To Craddle Her, And Treat Her Like A Baby!, If Shes Old Enough To Dress Like A 35 Year Old Woman and Have A Record Contract, Shes Old Enough To Get Her Feelings Hurt!
        And Besides, I Dont Know Why Anybody Reacted The Way That They Did, Because Judging By Every Persons Face In The Audience, And Backlash Of That Absolute Fluke Win Of Hers By The Public And The Media, Kanye Only Said What The Entire Nation Was Thinking- Well Anybody In The Nation With Half A Brain!

    I am not a fan of Kanye’s even before the whole Taylor Swift thing.
    Anyway, back to the bag. I love the way that it looks abused and beaten. I am sure that the leather is soft and squishy. The stories that bag could probably tell.

  • PerkyPeach

    Love Kanye! Love his bag! So glad he finally joined the twitterverse.

  • marius

    i was at maxfields on melrose and robertson and i saw this vintage hermes bag along with other vintage hermes and lv bags. love it, price starts at $14,000 to i don’t know. LOL

  • Bagolicious

    For those of you who don’t know Maxfields, it’s here in L.A. James Perse is the son of Maxfield…a well-known L.A. fashion industry family.

    • Maxfields is the only thing that makes me want to travel to Los Angeles. Oh, and the Decades shops. Those too. I’m much more of an East Coast type person, but the thought of those shops makes me salivate.

  • CoutureCoco

    I love vintage and Hermes but this poor bag looks a wreck. Hope he sends it to the spa.

  • fashionflag

    It’s a great bag

  • Staci

    I’m with Amanda – team Kanye all day!! Kanye’s tweets are so entertaining I love his bag, worn handles and all! The Taylor Swift incident is old news..let’s move on!

  • Loquita

    Gorgeous bag…whether you like what comes out of his mouth or not (and more often than not I tend to find him quite amazing), you have to admit the man has style – and then some.

  • tex

    EWWW!!!! The poor bag says, “Help me, I was abused by my previous owner whom obviously didn’t take care of his things very well!” It doesn’t look well traveled to me. It looks like they just kicked it aroud the airport.
    As far as Kanye and the Truth, WHATEVER! Everyone in the USA is entitled to their opinion. His opinion is not the truth. Did you forget that not everyone in the world are allowed to express their opinions?

  • Alma

  • Kanye West’s first career productions came on Chicago rapper Grav’s 1996 debut album Down to Earth. ‘-*
