Drake collecting luxury Birkin bags ‘for future wife’

Drake is collecting luxury Birkin bags from Hermes to give to his future wife.

The Hotline Bling rapper made the revelation as he showcased his huge mansion in Toronto for the latest issue of Architectural Digest, which he has nicknamed The Embassy.

Drake’s 50,000 square foot residence, which was masterminded by architectural and interior designer Ferris Rafauli, features a recording studio, an NBA-regulation-size basketball court, and a master bed that weighs more than a tonne.

During the interview, it was also revealed that the Canadian hip-hop star has been amassing a collection of Birkin handbags, which range from $12,000 (£9,500) to more than $200,000 (£159,000).

“Equally dramatic is Drake’s two-story closet, adorned with amethyst hardware, rock crystal, and seating upholstered in diamond-tufted shearling with polished nickel studs,” an Architectural Digest reporter noted. “It’s the perfect place to display the musician’s extensive wardrobe, sneaker collection, and the array of precious Hermes Birkin bags that he has been amassing for years.”

Drake previously told The Hollywood Reporter in 2017 that the collection was for “the woman I end up with”.

And the God’s Plan hitmaker isn’t the only superfan of the bag, which was named after British actress Jane Birkin by the French luxury goods maker.

Kylie Jenner outed her mother Kris Jenner as an obsessive Birkin bag collector in a Snapchat video back in 2016.

The beauty mogul documented helping her mum move her extensive collection into a dedicated closet, which was lit by a neon sign which read: “Need money for Birkin.”
