Frank Ocean Drake and Many More Commemorate Virgil Abloh
Praise has poured in from the music and fashion worlds, following the shocking death of the fashion world’s young and talented name on Sunday.
The famous fashion designer died at the age of 41 after a two-year battle with the rare cancer disease cardiac angiosarcoma. Sharing a photo of himself and fashion designer Virgil, Kanye West was fondly remembered by his friends such as Frank Ocean and Drake.
My plan is to touch the sky 1000 more times for you…love you eternally brother thank you for everything,” Drake wrote in the statement.
Virgil had designed Drake’s custom Patek Philippe watch on Drake’s large boeing 767 jet “Air drake” and the song “Life is good”.

“In 2018 I believe it was I called V and asked him how it was possible to play hundreds of shows a year and do numerous fashion collections a year and be a father and a husband and return EVERYONE’s texts with enthusiasm and emojis and encouragement and seemingly.. with ease,” Ocean wrote in a story post. “I cannot remember how he responded verbatim but I’m sure it was quotable whatever he said,” Ocean continued. “He was always quotable. But the gist of his response was that he was interested in living and living to the maximum extent of his level… which proved to be Impossible today because he was BEYOND.”
