In his shoot, the son of Hollywood stars Will and Jada Pinkett Smith is seen wearing a range of patterned and richly-hued pieces, accessorised with beaded jewellery.

Shrouding his athletic frame with baggy silhouettes, he poses in corduroy, bright patterned knitwear and tie-dye style prints for photographer Meg Young.

Speaking with Dayna Southall about his style, he said: ‘I always say Chris Isaak is one of my fashion idols, which is true. I always say Batman as well, which is also true.

‘I really love Batman. Honestly, he has some of the best style, as well as Bruce Wayne. I really look to them and the movies to find the right fit and the right style. I look to sci-fi movies…’

Waxing lyrical about his favourite sci-fi movies, he continued: ‘Maybe 2001: A Space Odyssey. I love Ready Player One; I love Tenet, all the outfits in Tenet! Just Robert Pattinson, whatever Robert Pattinson wears.

‘I’m excited to see Robert Pattinson as Batman. I also love John David Washington and whatever John David Washington wears, he’s my style inspiration.

‘I’ve watched Tenet seven times; I’m not even halfway done with the number of times I’m gonna watch that movie…

‘I have to watch it again, because the first time you’re just watching it and the second time you’re like “OK, I have to think”. But it was actually a sick film.’

Elsewhere in the creative realm, the multi-hyphenate also discussed his latest album, CTV3: Cool Tape Vol.3, which was released earlier this year.

He said: ‘I took a lot of time to focus on this album. I feel like this album is like a prequel and goes back in time. It talks about an earlier time in my life, and it’s talking from the perspective of a young Jaden.

‘I think it’s really a different sound for me. I like to experience different sounds and I want to continue to do everything and not stay in the same lane, which is what people would expect. I’m really excited for the future and the songs on this album.’

Describing his latest sound as ‘psychedelic alternative hip-hop’, he also went on to reveal that his musical inspirations are as varied as his style icons.

‘I was looking at a lot of The Beach Boys’ music,’ said Jaden. ‘I love them, I love The Beatles too, and Kimi Hendrix, and different older acts like Chuck Berry. I was really diving into different music for this album.’

Outside of his work in the arts, the California native also notably started up his own bottled water company, JUST Water, when he was just 10 years old.

The company is now worth an impressive $100million and, most importantly, uses 82 per cent renewable resources.  

Discussing his reasons for taking on the project, he said: ‘I had two teachers teaching me about the environment in different ways.

‘I started learning how special it was from one teacher, and then also about how it affects us from another teacher.

‘That’s what really inspired me to continue to learn about it, but then to also try and occupy the space and make a difference and create change.’
