As Virgil made the customary post-show walk down the rainbow-colored runway at the Jardin du Palais Royal in Paris, the two Chicago natives linked up for a long, and emotional hug. Instagrammed by Takeshi Murakami, a frequent collaborator of both West and Abloh, the two can be heard weeping in each other's arms before Abloh finishes his stroll down the runway.

Watch the clip above and then go hug one of your friends like that today.
