Chainsaw. Gasoline. Matches. A Hermès Birking Handbag? Tragedy! Francesca Eastwood, the 19-year old daughter of Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood and star of the reality TV show Mrs. Eastwood & Company, decided to accept the challenge — all in the name of art. Along with her photographer boyfriend Tyler Shields, they publically demolished a $100,000 crocodile Hermès Birking bag by setting it on fire with gasoline, before taking a chainsaw to it.
The results of their so-called “art project” can be seen on Shields’ website, where she wrote: “Destruction is a beautiful version of freedom… Would you want this bag? Are you sad to see me destroy it?”
On Mrs. Eastwood & Company, Francesca’s step-mother Dina expressing her disgust at the fact that Francesca even owned a bag worth so much and stating that she does not understand the true value of money.
According to TMZ: “Sources close to Francesca tell us … the 19-year-old said she knew people would be shocked, but never expected this level of hatred. We’re told she’s been telling friends … people just don’t understand art.”
