Kim Kardashian takes accessories seriously. The reality TV star, who turns 41 today, never leaves the house without a trendy accessory to complement her outfit. While her expansive wardrobe is filled with shoes, gems, and memorable hats, Kardashian’s favorite finishing touch has always been the handbag. Its collection of designer balls number in the millions. Whether or not you’ve seen the price tags, the pieces she selects from luxury brands like HermÃ¨s, Louis Vuitton, Dior or Balenciaga are always exceptional.
Right now every Hollywood celebrity has a Birkin at their disposal, but no one else will show up in a Custom Strap Top with a painting of contemporary art legend George Condo. Likewise, the Louis Vuitton Keepall 45 is an iconic travel bag that many stars rely on, but few have been as devoted to the piece as Kardashian, who chooses a new version every season.
As a collector, Kardashian goes the extra mile to select wearable art pieces. While she’s going to pick up the latest it-item, what interests her are insider props with lasting power. In the nearly two decades she’s spent in the limelight, she’s been able to amass an impressive assortment of designer bags that she plans to pass on to her sons and daughters. As North already has her own mini-Birkin, Kardashian’s long-term plan seems wise, but in the meantime, she’s enjoying her many eye-catching designer finds. Below, a look back at the ten most iconic pieces from the Kardashian collection.
