How Jaden Smith Became an Icon in the Fashion World

Jaden Smith has the good looks of both his mother and father, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith who make a striking couple. The handsome young man has had an edge on fashion with two parents that have very distinct styles. He has personally, as the son of very famous parents, been under the microscope. What he wears, how he styles his hair and the accessories he wears down to his sneaker matter because one misstep is going to be splashed across the tabloids if it’s seen by prying eyes. The effect that it’s had on him? There probably has been some impact, but Jaden Smith is his own young man and he has his own vision of what fashion means to him. He’s become an icon in the fashion industry and it’s been a lifelong process that has culminated in a unique and discriminating sense of taste.

Jaden has his own philosophy on fashion

Jaden is just 20 years old, but he knows his own mind and he knows what he likes. He stated that he’s looking for a brand to partner with that shares his unique vision and perspective on fashion. When it comes to aesthetics, he’s no-nonsense. He’s a young man in control of his own fashion destiny. He’s recently been working on a project that is a collaboration with G-Star RAW on a new collection in which he will serve as the celebrity endorser. He’s in on the design and he’s doing something that would make any parent proud. The new denim capsule collection is called “Forces of Nature.” It’s a sustainable collection which means that the manufacturing processes are not harmful to the environment, which most of us can appreciate given the current health risks that our planet faces.

Making waves in the fashion industry

Jaden Smith’s new collection is already making waves as it made its debut at the first annual Hype Fest, sponsored by Hypebeast Magazine. It’s about street style and culture in the festival which happened at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Jaden first became acquainted with G-Star when he was only 11 years old. He equates the process of fashion design to the art of making music. His concern isn’t about the packaging, but more about what goes into the creative process.

Smith’s influences

Jaden Smith shared that he definitely has his own favorites when it comes to fashion icons. The ones that inspire him are Young Thug and Poseidon. These are the ones that he looks up to. He chose G-star for his initial collaboration because of their environmentally-friendly approach to the manufacture of their clothing. This is a noble rationale that many young people of his age don’t readily consider in a brand. It’s something that is important to Jaden and it tells us something about his personal values.

Speaking of values

Smith also shared that he had the realization that the fashion industry does have an impact on the environment. He speaks of social change and progression towards the processes that will leave a smaller carbon footprint.

Honored in Great Britain

When Jaden Smith and his sister Willow attended the 2016 Fashion Awards which was hosted by the British Fashion Council, they were awarded the New Fashion Icons Award. Both of the Smiths made the cut and this is one more factor that helped in making Jaden Smith relevant and an icon in the fashion world. He’s acting on the acknowledgment of his unique and classy sense of fashion and putting it to good use by stepping up to the plate and offering his guidance and opinions on style. We’re seeing Jaden embark on a new career in the fashion industry and he has many thoughtful contributions to make.

Final thoughts

Jaden Smith is a talented and thoughtful young man who is on a journey through life and he’s finding his own way. Fashion appears to be something that comes to him quite naturally and it’s just one of his many talents. He’s an actor and a musician but most importantly, he has a quiet type of self-confidence. It isn’t that he’s in need of help to find his way. It’s more about sharing his beliefs and his knowledge about what fashion really means to him and helping others to see that the hows and the whys really do matter.
