Kim Kardashian now has TWO painted Hermes' in her accessory arsenal...

Kim Kardashian might have a walk-in wardrobe ram-packed with designer accessories but nothing quite compares to the piece of arm-candy that was a gift to her from her baby daughter North... 

We clocked the 34-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashian's starlet as she ran errands with her rapper hubby Kanye West in LA sporting her most precious bag to date; a Hermes Kelly gifted to her by her one-year-old tot for her birthday last month. If the pressie wasn't generous enough, North put her own distinctive mark on the iconic bag by customising it with paint slappers and hand prints.  

Talking to US Weekly about her bespoke gift, Kim couldn't help but gush about it: 'Kanye had a box [with an Hermes purse in it] and I opened it up and it was all painted really cool and on my computer was this message that said "Play", and it was a video of my daughter sitting outside painting the purse. I had thought it was this new artist who had painted this purse [but] it was my daughter. It was amazing.'

The brown leather top handle tote had the front section painted off-white to give North the blank canvas she needed to let her creative juices flow. Along with blue and yellow brush-strokes, emblazoned in the centre of the bag is a bright orange hand print. Adorbs. 

This isn't the first bespoke Hermes Kim has received since getting together with Kanye; this past Christmas he also bestowed upon her a work-of-art Birkin bag that was painted by renowned artist George Condo - check it here.

Give the guy some credit; it's really difficult to think up new pressie ideas year-in, year-out...

While the sentiment is very sweet, it's definitely worth mentioning that to get your hands on a coveted Birkin you often have to be willing to out your name on a waiting list YEARS in advance and have a spare £10k to drop on it. Yep, this ain't no fridge-worthy finger-paint.

However, Kim and Kayne aren't the only ones to go paint-happy on their arm-candy. In fact, it's a HUGE trend that's growing; just take a look at this show-stopping Cinderella-inspired number...

When will this madness stop?! #SaveTheBirkins
