On 28 November we were all shocked to learn of the death of one of the most creative designers in the history of fashion, Virgil Abloh, from angiosarcoma of the heart, a rare form of aggressive cancer.

As expected, social media began to flood with hundreds of thousands of messages and posts mourning the loss of the designer, including some of his closest friends in the fashion industry, such as the Hadid sisters, Gigi and Bella, Kendall Jenner, Naomi Campbell and many more.

But if there was one that especially touched us, it was that of his friend and almost brother, Kanye West, now known as YE, because in addition to showing his absolute sadness, the rapper and designer decided to reunite his choir, Sunday Service, and honour his great friend Virgil. This performance was truly special, thanks in part to a new version of Adele’s “Easy on Me” performed by the choir, accompanied by a message that read: “IN LOVING MEMORY OF VIRGIL ABLOH, THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF DONDA.”
