Kanye, 44, and Kim, 41, were seen front row at the Spring/Summer 2022 Louis Vuitton menswear presentation in Miami on Tuesday evening with their daughter North, 8, sitting in between them. Before the show began, Kim posted a few photos on her Instagram Story, including a sand sculpture of Abloh and an enormous, red Louis Vuitton-branded hot air balloon.
The presentation marks the first time the former couple has been seen together publicly since Kim began dating Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson. In addition to North, Kim and Kanye share daughter Chicago, 3½, and sons Saint West, 5½, and Psalm, 2½. Since Kim filed for divorce from the rapper in February, the former couple has focused on co-parenting peacefully.-
Louis Vuitton announced that Abloh’s final menswear collection in Miami will “pay tribute to the life and legacy of a creative genius.” The show was held at the Miami Marine Stadium, where Kanye led a Sunday Service event two years ago to close out Art Basel. Attendees took a ferry to the venue about two hours before the presentation began.
On Sunday, PEOPLE confirmed Abloh, the artistic director of Louis Vuitton and founder of Off-White, died at age 41 after a two-year battle with a rare form of cancer called cardiac angiosarcoma.
In a statement posted to Abloh’s Instagram page by his family, they revealed he underwent “numerous challenging treatments” all while continuing his work in fashion and art. “Through it all, his work ethic, infinite curiosity, and optimism never wavered,” the family said. “Virgil was driven by his dedication to his craft and to his mission to open doors for others and create pathways for greater equality in art and design.”
Abloh’s friendship with Kanye dates back well over a decade, and he connected with Kim through the rapper. Though Abloh was not formally educated in fashion (he earned a degree in civil engineering and master’s in architecture), he landed an internship at Fendi alongside Kanye in 2009. From there, the duo’s collaboration took off.
