The latest Louis Vuitton menswear collection, created under the leadership of Virgil Abloh, who died of cancer on November 28, was shown in Miami yesterday. 41-year-old Kim Kardashian and 44-year-old Kanye West came to pay tribute to their friend and one of the most influential and talented designers of our time. The parents were accompanied by their eight-year-old daughter North.
More recently, West has stated his desire to reunite with his wife, with whom they broke up a few months ago, and with their children. Unfortunately, the reason for their meeting was not at all joyful. The couple and their daughter took a seat in the front row and watched the show until the very end.
The show that took place at the stadium Miami Marine Stadium, ended with a beautiful and touching salute — the initials of the designer appeared in the sky, and then the inscription "Virgil was here", which translates as "Virgil was here".
A huge statue of Abloh was also installed at the stadium, which towered against the background of a red air flag with the letters LV.
For Kim and Kanye, this release was the first joint appearance in public after the news about Kim's affair with comedian Pete Davidson. They say that the TV star is very happy with Pete, but Kanye does not approve of their relationship and wants his wife back.
The couple had been linked with Abloh for many years of friendship. Virgil was the director of Kanye's creative agency Donda and the art director of Kanye West and Jay-Z's album Watch the Throne. And at the engagement of West and Kardashian in San Francisco, Abloh performed as a DJ. At the couple's wedding, he was West's best man. The rapper dedicated his Sunday service to the memory of his deceased friend.
