Kim Kardashian and Kanye West put on a united front to come into view together at late designer Virgil Abloh’s final show for Louis Vuitton in Miami.

The separating couple, in company with their daughter North West, paid accolade to the label’s one time artistic director Abloh at his Spring-Summer 2022 Collection in Miami on Tuesday, marking his last presentation for the brand.

Kardashian and West sat front row at Abloh’s last collection — billed as a commemoration to the designer’s life and legacy — at Miami’s Marine Stadium with their eight-year-old daughter North.

They put on a united front in-spite of Kardashian’s new romance with

“Saturday Night Live”

star Pete Davidson and West’s latest new public solemn promise to rejoin his family.

Abloh, founder of haute-street-wear label Off-White and a prolific DJ, died aged 41 on Sunday following a private, two-year struggle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a seldom occurring cancer.

The designer was a well established associate of West and served as creative director for the rapper’s design agency Donda. He as well art-directed the covers for West’s albums

“My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” and “Yeezus.”

After Abloh set afloat his own label Off-White, he very quickly became a force in luxury streetwear and was signed by LVMH to run Louis Vuitton’s menswear division in 2008.

In a post on the brand’s Instagram page, Louis Vuitton’s chairman and CEO, Michael Burke described it was Abloh’s wish for the show to go on.

“Virgil was not only a friend, great collaborator, creative genius, visionary and disruptor, but also one of the best cultural communicators of our times … He was an eternal optimist who believed anything was possible.

“In this same spirit, we at Louis Vuitton will proudly continue to celebrate his legacy with a final show in Miami, per his wishes.”

Abloh’s family said on his Instagram that he chose to keep his diagnosis personal,

“undergoing numerous challenging treatments,”

At the same time continued his work in the world of fashion.

“Through it all, his work ethic, infinite curiosity, and optimism never wavered. 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.

“He often said, ‘Everything I do is for the 17-year-old version of myself,’ believing deeply in the power of art to inspire future generations.”

Kardashian and Davidson started dating sequel to the reality star’s “SNL” host spot. They’ve since seldom been seen without one another, be it holding hands, giggling in the car or commemorating Davidson’s birthday.

West, who shares four children with the KKW Beauty founder – North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2 — wiped out all the posts from his Instagram account on Monday after he shared a lengthy Thanksgiving prayer asking to restore friendly relations with Kardashian.

“All I think about every day is how I get my family back together and how I heal the pain that I’ve caused,”

the rapper – who now goes by Ye – said.

“I take accountability for my actions.”

Others at the Louis Vuitton show included 21 Savage, Lil Baby, Gunna, Metro Boomin, 2 Chainz, plus Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. (The couple, close friends of the Arnault family, who own LV, were seated in the front row also). Quavo modeled in the runway show, alongside with Kid Cudi and Offset.
