Kanye West is known to give expensive gifts to women who are involved with him. Back when he was dating Julia Fox, he gifted her and her friends Birkin bags. Now he has done the same for Kim Kardashian clone Chaney Jones he is dating. However, this one is extremely expensive.
Kanye gifted Chaney Jones a $275,000 Birkin Bag, a source close to ET confirmed. The insider elaborated, Ye “purchased an extremely rare version of the Birkin bag for Chaney Jones for $275,000 from Privé Porter.”
The bag is made of silver metallic Chèvre leather with palladium hardware. On Tuesday night, it was delivered straight to Jones in Houston, Texas. The source specified, “Kanye watched as Chaney received the bag via FaceTime.”
“This is a very limited production bag that was only made in 2004. Other notable owners of this bag are Jeffree Star, who purchased from me, and Bella Hadid. It’s one of the most famous and sought after Birkins in the world,” Michelle Berk, CEO of Privé Porter told the outlet.
“The demand is because of the beauty and uniqueness of the bag… as well as the limited production numbers,” Berk stated. “This bag has sold for as high as $300,000. Kanye’s team was adamant that they only wanted this bag, no substitutions. The timing was uncanny as we had just added it to our Metaverse Fashion Week ANFT collection, a huge innovation in luxury ownership and authenticity, and she ended up being the first person to have something of this nature.”
Jeffery Berk, managing director of Privé Porter, personally delivered it to Jones. Kanye is a billionaire, so buying something like this doesn’t really hurt his pockets. Most of his net worth and income are derived from his Yeezy brand, and to take his fashion brand even further; he recently hired a known designer to lead his empire.
