Jaden Smith is known as definitely one superstar that has taken fashion to an entirely different level, encouraging others to simply dress not how society demands but how you feel best. Well, the 20-year-old jack-of-all-trades recently sat down with GQ to talk about his new collection with G-Star, in addition to filling us in on who are some of his style icons. You won’t believe who he actually pinged as high on his list.
In actuality, Smith admitted that he has three style icons: Tyler the Creator, Batman, and Poseidon. “I mean, Tyler showed me Supreme,” he says in his interview. “Like, I never cared about Supreme until Tyler.”
If you remember, Smith has dressed as Batman in music videos and also wore a Batman suit to prom and to Kim and Kanye’s wedding. “I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so.”
Now his third choice, well, check out what he had to say about the God of the Sea himself. “Poseidon—I feel like he always comes with the next-level vibes,” which in actuality explains Smith’s skirt phase because Poseidon technically was the one to rock the look first. The young star states that he likes the sculptures of Poseidon as he is wrapped in his flowing marble robes.
In terms of his current collaboration with G-Star, Forces of Nature, Smith stated in his interview with GQ that it is a collection of nature-themed clothes which he cuts and sews the heavy denim patchwork for the jeans himself in his Calabasas home. If you don’t remember, here’s Smith’s video for “Batman,” proving that the caped crusader is definitely top on his fashion list!
