Yesterday, Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian pulled through for the Paris Fashion Week showcase.
BTW … it’s a huge moment for Kanye too, who broke down in tears meeting up with a longtime friend, Virgil Abloh — Louis Vuitton’s new artistic director of menswear. They go way back, and Virgil even worked with Kanye before taking on his most prominent role yet … becoming the first black artistic director in the company’s 164-year history. (TMZ)
Back in March, a slew of hip-hop artists celebrated Virgil landing his new Louis Vuitton gig.

Louis Vuitton’s top executive previously dished on his determination to add Virgil’s talent to the brand’s roster.
In a statement, Michael Burke, Chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton, says that “having followed with great interest Virgil’s ascent since he worked with me at Fendi in 2006, I am thrilled to see how his innate creativity and disruptive approach have made him so relevant, not just in the world of fashion but in popular culture today.” (Forbes)
