What Sira Kante wore to Paris Fashion Week
The model, influencer and all-around It-girl struts through Paris dressed in her favorite looks from H&M's latest collection.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF H&M STUDIO SS18?
“I’m happy to see that this collection wasn’t afraid of playing with colors, patterns and textures.”
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PIECE?
“My favorite piece has to be the white set with fringes. Any playful outfit is a win for me.”
WHAT ARE YOUR BEST TIPS TO MAKE IT THROUGH FASHION MONTH?
“Make sure you’re well-rested, invest in a portable charger to keep your phone alive, and be on time for everything.”
HOW WOULD YOU COMPARE PARIS TO OTHER FASHION WEEKS?
“Compared to the other fashion weeks, I know that Paris is always the boldest. Since it's the last city that closes fashion month, Paris always makes a statement. They hold the key to fashion trade worldwide and they hold the highest influence on fashion trends.”
WHAT'S THE ONE SONG YOU'RE HOPING TO HEAR AT THE H&M STUDIO SHOW?
“Either Lady (Hear Me Tonight) by Mojo or Itty Bitty Piggy with Nicki Minaj.”
LIST YOUR FIVE FASHION WEEK NECESSITIES.
“Cell phone, nude underwear, an all-black outfit, my own foundation and water to stay hydrated.”
SINCE YOU TRAVEL SO MUCH, HAVE YOU BECOME AN EXPERT PACKER? WHAT ARE YOUR SUITCASE STRATEGIES?
“I've definitely become an expert packer over time. I learned to pack light and only bring things that I needed for each day. I usually just pack in a small suitcase.”
WHAT’S THE MOST FRIVOLOUS PIECE YOU PACKED THAT YOU JUST COULDN’T BEAR TO LEAVE BEHIND?
“I never pack anything that doesn’t have a serious purpose! I use everything that I pack.”
HOW DO YOU PREP FOR A FULL DAY OF SHOWS? WHAT ARE YOUR EARLY MORNING ROUTINES?
“I eat breakfast, keep a fresh face, wear all black and listen to music that keeps me in a good mood.”
WHO SHOULD WE ALL BE FOLLOWING ON INSTAGRAM RIGHT NOW?
“Me [laughs]! Aside from me, everyone should follow Will Smith, he’s hilarious!”
H&M Studio SS18 will be presented in full at Paris Fashion Week on February 28.
