On Tuesday night November 30, celebrities came together to celebrate the ‘life and legacy’ of Virgil Abloh by attending a presentation of the late fashion designer’s final Louis Vuitton collection in Miami.
Kim Kardashian and her estranged husband Kanye West, who were close friends with Abloh, were seated front row as they attended the runway show with their eight-year-old daughter North.
The couple, who separated in February after nearly seven years of marriage, were later pictured posing together.
Abloh tragically passed away at the age of 41 on Nov. 28 after a private battle with a rare form of cancer. He served as men’s artistic director for Louis Vuitton from 2018 until his death.
Virgil’s Spring-Summer 2022 runway collection was showcased during the tribute presentation, titled VIRGIL WAS HERE, that commenced at 5:30PM Eastern Time.
Kanye and Kim’s outing come after the rapper vowed to restore his relationship with the reality star amid her new romance with Pete Davidson.
Last month, the 44-year-old rapper spoke about his marriage to Kim Kardashian while attending the Los Angeles Mission’s Annual Thanksgiving event in Skid Row. During his speech, Kanye expressed his desires for him and Kim to get back together and needing “to be back home.”
“The narrative God wants is to see that we can be redeemed in all these relationships. We’ve made mistakes. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband,” he says in a video shared by PageSix.
“But right now today, for whatever reason, I didn’t know I was going to be standing right here. I didn’t know I was gonna be in front of this mic, but I’m here to change the narrative.”
Kanye then continued by expressing that he wasn’t going to let E!, Hulu and Disney, networks that work with the Kardashians on their reality shows, “write the narrative of his family. I am the priest of my own home.”
“I have to be next to my children as much as possible. So, when I’m out the house, I’ve got a house right next to the house. I’m doing everything to be right next to the situation, But I need to be back home.” he said
“If the enemy can separate Kimye, there’s going to be millions of families that feel like that separation is OK… but when God brings Kimye together, there’s going to be millions of families that are going to be influenced to see that they can overcome the work of the separation,” he continued. “Of trauma the devil has used to capitalize to keep people in misery while people step over homeless people to go to the Gucci store.”
Kanye and Kim also share three children together, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star filed for divorce from the rapper in February, after seven years of marriage.
