Jaden Smith is the new face of Louis Vuitton's Spring Summer 2016 collection. The 17 year old son of Will and Jada has been pictured wearing a skirt in one of the first pictures from the shoot.
Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquière said: "He represents a generation that has assimilated the codes of true freedom, one that is free of manifestos and questions about gender. Wearing a skirt comes as naturally to him as it would to a woman who, long ago, granted herself permission to wear a man's trench or a tuxedo. Jaden Smith conveys something very interesting about the integration of a global wardrobe. He's found an instinctive balance that makes his extraordinary attitude a new norm. That really inspired me in the creative process for this collection."
Jaden has been spotted wearing lots of skirts recently, telling the press he does a lot of shopping in Top Shop. After he was criticised for his choices online, he tweeted: 'Went To TopShop To Buy Some Girl Clothes, I Mean "Clothes".'
