North West is not just taking fashion advice from her parents – she’s showing them how it’s done; from wearing custom-made garments to strutting down the runway.

Having said that, her latest accessory has elicited some *ahem* opinions from internet-lurkers (i.e. everyone).

Last weekend, North was spotted leaving Kanye West's Mary opera in NYC with Kim K and little brother Saint. Dressed in a custom SKIMS robe, white boots, and a pearl choker, North finished the look with a Dhs37,000 Hermès Birkin bag — likely (read: hopefully) borrowed from her mom.

Some people took the opportunity to joke about how iconic it is for a primary schooler to already own a handbag with a price-tag unsettlingly close to the number of hours she’s lived. Others weren’t quite so jovial, criticising the fashion choice as “overindulgent” and “ridiculous”.
