- North West will receive a “one of a kind” Lego Chanel bag when her grandmother Kris Jenner dies.
- Kim Kardashian told James Corden that the bag was originally supposed to be for North.
- Kris Jenner won over the late Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld and received the gift.
Kim Kardashian has said her daughter North West will inherit a special Chanel bag from Kris Jenner in the event of the businesswoman’s death – and it’s locked away in Jenner’s will.
On Thursday, Kardashian appeared on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” ahead of “The Kardashians” season two premiere next week.
During the interview, Kardashian recalled how the bag ended up in Jenner’s possession after filming her first “high-stakes photo shoot” with former Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, who died in 2019.
At the time, Kardashian was eight months pregnant with North, her first child with ex-husband Kanye West.
Kardashian told Corden she was excited about the shoot because she heard that Lagerfeld “will give you a bag on set if it’s your first photo shoot with him.”
However, things changed when Kardashian’s mom arrived and won over the creative director.
“He’s coming a few hours later,” the reality star told Corden. “Then enter none other than Kris Jenner decked out in a vintage Chanel from head to toe. Next level. The boots, the gloves, every accessory she can find. Earrings, tiara, hat, glasses, fanny pack, purse, backpack. It was like the craziest Chanel scene I’ve ever witnessed.”
Kardashian said that when Jenner arrived, Lagerfeld fell in love with her and barely recognized the reality star.
At the end of filming, Lagerfeld brought a “big Lego” bag that looked like a crystal, Kardashian recalled.
“It was unique. Just a runway piece that didn’t even go into production. It was black and white. Black crystals and I was literally like, ‘This is the moment. He’s going to give me the bag,'” said the SKIMS founder. “He tells the whole story: ‘I have this gift for you. It was so amazing meeting you.’ Then he walks over me and hands it to my mother.”
Kardashian continued: “I went into the bathroom, I started crying hysterically and I’m like pregnant, hormonal, I flew to Paris for this. I call my cousin Cici [Bussey] and I’m like, ‘This bitch took my fucking bag'”.
Kardashian explained that she planned to give the bag to her daughter North and display it in her bedroom.
Jenner now has a clause in her will that states that when she dies, North will receive the scholarship.
North seems to have an interest in fashion and Kardashian said her daughter has judged her style in the past.
During a Vogue Forces of Fashion press conference in March, Kardashian told People that North is “very opinionated” when it comes to her mother’s clothes.
She also revealed in “Ellen” that North styled her family for Vogue’s March cover story.
