PHOTOS Kim Kardashian shows off Hermes purse painted by daughter North West

It didn’t take long for the youngest member of André Leon Talley’s “First Family of Fashion” to break into the business! The 16-month-old North West’s talents were on display in Los Angeles earlier today as proud mom Kim Kardashian showed off a Hermes designer handbag hand painted by her daughter and given to her as a birthday gift by North and Kim’s husband, Kanye West.

The handbag was originally, appropriately enough, canvas-colored with leather accents. North applied blue, yellow and orange paints in a Jackson Pollock inspired splattering process with the Jasper Johnsian finishing touch of a bright orange handprint:

Kim shared a photo of her, Kanye and the bag on instagram, describing it as “my favorite bag painted by my little North:”

Kim had previously talked about receiving the bag for her birthday. “Kanye had a box [with an Hermes purse in it] and I opened it up and it was all painted really cool,” she told Us Weekly. “And on my computer was this message that said ‘Play,’ and it was a video of my daughter sitting outside painting the purse.”

She added, “I had thought it was this new artist who had painted this purse, [but] it was my daughter. It was amazing.”

And speaking of artists painting Hermes handbags as gifts for Kim Kardashian, you may recall Kanye previously presented Kim with a rather controversial (and risque) Hermes bag painted by George Condo.
