Kim Kardashian is back in the fashion capital . Deeply traumatized by the robbery she suffered in Paris in October 2016, during which she had been stolen for about $ 9 million in jewelry, the reality star had explained in the show The Incredible Kardashian Family do not wish to return in the City of Light before “5,6 or 10 years”.
After opening her first ephemeral store, KKW Beauty , Kim Kardashian was eclipsed in a private jet to Paris. Kanye West’s wife and rapper and younger sister, Kylie Jenner ,attended the first Louis Vuitton men’s parade of American Virgil Abloh on Thursday , to the surprise of not having seen public in Paris since the robbery. Why did the influencer finally return to Paris?
Kim Kardashian could not sulk Paris any longer
Threatened with a weapon on the temple, tied up, gagged, and locked in the bathroom by burglars in a discreet luxury hotel residence in Paris on the night of October 2 to 3, 2016 in Paris Fashion Week, no doubt that the Reality star took a little time before setting foot in the French capital.
The problem? Kim Kardashian is one of the most influential stars of the fashion world. She received the first Influencer Award of the CFDA Awards on June 4th at the Brooklyn Museum in New York. As such, it would have been difficult for her to “zap Paris for ten years. There are too many financial stakes for her, and being seen here is important for her image, “said Jean Privé, PR Officer at Totem Fashion Paris & Writer.
Why ? “Paris is still today the fashion capital, the most international Fashion Week with the biggest advertisers: Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior, Saint Laurent, etc. Not to mention Balmain, with whom she has contracts close to millions of euros, “explains the expert. The star, close friend of Olivier Rousteing , the artistic director of Balmain, is one of the muses of the French fashion house founded in 1946 in recent years. “It was therefore essential that she return to the city of light,” says the specialist.
Virgil Abloh is a close friend of her husband, Kanye West
In addition, since the early 2000s, Virgil Abloh is part of the close guard of Kanye West, the husband of Kim K. Both from Chicago, the two men attended the same creative groups. “Kanye was first a mentor for Virgil. He taught him some discipline in the job, a way of challenging the status quo. Both of them work a little like a big brother and a big brother, “explains to the Obs the designer and stylist Heron Preston.

Virgil Abloh, training architect, owner of a concept store, DJ, party harder, then fashion designer, especially with his Off-White label, has become the rapper’s gray eminence. It was then to his friend and “mentor” Kanye West that Virgil Abloh headed for the end of the parade, coming to greet his audience. The two men hugged each other for a long time, both in tears.
“It’s in Paris that buzz and historical moments are made. Like the show Louis Vuitton yesterday where she went, the first in the history of luxury orchestrated by an African-American designer, Virgil Abloh, “comments Jean Privé. It’s impossible for the most famous influencer in the world to miss such an event. As Humphrey Bogart puts it so well at the end of Casablanca , “we’ll always have Paris”.
