Virgil Abloh’s Posthumous Collection Virgil Was Here in Miami

30 November marked the date of the last runway show by Louis Vuitton designer Virgil Abloh, who passed away unexpectedly a few days before. The event turned out to be a very emotional one, as many of Virgil’s friends and colleagues, including Kanye West and Pharrell among others, showed up to pay respect to the late designer. The show included an enormous statue of Virgil in a very Abloh-esque colour palette, and the event closed with a recording of Abloh speaking: “There’s no limit, life is so short that you can’t waste even a day subscribing to what someone thinks you can do versus knowing what you can do,” his voice said. This was followed by a swarm of drones taking to the sky spelled out the phrase “Virgil was here” in the sky, signaling the end of an era.
