For his first time at Paris Fashion Week, Gen Z heartthrob Nico Hiraga swapped out the skatepark for a front row seat at the Kenzo show.
The skater-turned-actor, who you might recall from last year's high school comedy Moxie and coming-of-age film Booksmart, flew in from his San Francisco home exclusively for the retro varsity-themed show, which featured preppy college pennants and Kenzo-branded emblems. (He'll next be seen in Netflix's YA rom-com Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between.)
Hiraga and Kenzo both share Japanese heritage — the 24-year-old is half-Japanese, and Kenzo, which was founded by its late namesake Japanese designer Kenzo Takada, is currently designed by Japanese creative director Nigo. For the big day, he was dressed in a yellow Kenzo floral shirt and army green pants with a tiger belt, and he took photos with fellow showgoers Omar Apollo and Jaden Smith.
He documented his first Kenzo show experience exclusively for PAPER in the gallery, below.
