Cardi B should really change its name to Cardi Birkin.
The rapper’s weakness of “WAP for her iconic Hermès bag is certainly no secret and last October had led us to discover all her huge and incredible collection. And now with a video posted to Instagram, the 28-year-old has just shown off the new Birkin she has given herself.
A Birkin Cargo, which according to the website of the fashion house French, is a “multi-pocket and multi-practical” model and is “inspired by military clothing“. The leather and canvas design feature five pockets on the outside and even a built-in water bottle door.

As Page Six reports, the cost of Birkin cargo ranges between $65,000 and $80,000, but in the video, Cardi says he searched for her (and wanted her) so much that he paid her “triple“, which means she probably spent up to $240,000 on her new bag.
“ I wanted this f… Birkin. You don’t understand, I called all the stores in Hermès, it just came out this year… I had to pay triple but I love it,” she says in the clip. “I just thought it was so amazing, it’s so beautiful.”
The Birkin is the holy grail of luxury fashion since very few specimens are produced, there is a waiting list to get it and Hermès does not sell it to people who are not already loyal customers of the brand.
In addition, it must be considered that a Birkin increases its value over time, so it is a sure investment, for this reason, it is also collected by men, including rapper Drake.
