Drake Is Collecting Birkin Bags For His Lucky Future Wife
Is this sweet — or a little strange?
Rapper Drake has made a career of documenting the ups and downs of his love life in his music. Now, the prolific entertainer has revealed an interesting detail about how he is preparing for his future wife, whoever she may be: he collects Birkin bags. Birkin bags, if you’re unfamiliar, are a line of luggage and purses made by luxury designer Hermes and named for the singer and actress Jane Birkin.
The bags are considered status symbols due to their high price tags and popularity amongst celebs. Drake is betting on the fact that the woman he will one day marry will be a fan—or will become one, once she inherits her new collection!
Watch him talk about his peculiar habit in the clip below:

When asked what people might be surprised to learn he is a fan of, Drake answered:
“I’m a fan of Hermes Birkins. There’s very few things in this world, tangible things anyway, that hold their value, and sort of appreciate as the years go on. It was one of those things that I just started collecting as well, I guess for the woman that I end up with one day. I have a fairly vast collection of Hermes to offer somebody at some point in life. ”
Fans on Twitter had mixed reactions about his quirky collectibles. Some thought it was super-romantic that he was stockpiling luxury items for his future wife. Like this fan, who was ready to walk down the aisle with Drake:

Well, if Drake’s fame, fortune and talent weren’t enough for a potential mate, maybe a love of designer handbags will do the trick!
What do you think? Is it sweet that Drake already has gifts for his future wife, or should he wait at least until he meets her so he has a better idea of her tastes?
