aden Smith's Style in "Fallen"
If you’re looking for some unique style tips, then look no further than Jaden Smith. The video for "Fallen", from his debut album SYRE, features several of the style choices that consistently put the young artist on the front pages of fashion magazines.
The video is set in 1867 Calabasas, and features a cameo by fellow MSFTS artist Harry Hudson, portraying the intriguing Sheriff Harry. The western vibes are off the charts in this video, and all of you aspiring urban cowboys out there will not want to miss out on Jaden and Harry’s style cues.
Outfits from the Music Video
0:30 - Jaden kicks off the video with his typical flair. In this shot he wears a beige fisherman jacket, a simple yet surprising choice. While there are countless versions of this item, MISBHV’s take is bound to make the fashion heads drool.
Fringed Suede Belt Bag
0:35 - It wouldn’t be the far west without some fringes. Jaden sports a fringed suede belt bag, another unique choice. If you can do away with the extra pocket, you’ll love this one from ASOS.
Nike Air Mags
0:38 - The video may be set in the past, but Jaden’s kicks are from the future. The sneakerheads will already have recognized the legendary Nike Air Mags. Be prepared to drop quite some cash for these unique sneakers.
"Flame of Disorder" Tee (Sold Out)
0:51 - The white “Flame of Disorder” T-Shirt is only one among countless amazing merch items from Jaden. This particular one is sold out, but I invite you to check out similar pieces from MSFTS’ store.
Custom Made Denim with Suicidal Tendencies Patch
0:53 - The denim is custom made, featuring a patch from the punk/metal band Suicidal Tendencies. For the more DIY-friendly among you, here’s the patch and some similar denim so you can get your customization on.
Maison Margiela Sunglasses & Black Felt Hat
Hand Painted Gucci Biker Jacket & Plain Leather Jacket
1:45 - Jaden now adds a beautiful, hand painted, Gucci biker jacket. This one is a 1 of 1 piece, but Gucci certainly isn’t lacking in embellished leather jackets. Sheriff Harry wears a plain leather one, for a more budget friendly style choice.
Khaki Cargo Pants
3:13 - Sheriff Harry now shows off the rest of his outfit, sporting a pair of khaki cargo pants. Extra pockets and utility can’t be passed upon in the far west. Get them from ASOS.
As you can see, Jaden is not one to showcase his entire closet in one video. While some will lament the lack of inspiration given by the very limited amount of items showcased, you should read deeper into the style lesson that the young rapper is trying to teach here.
It’s all about quality, not quantity. Jaden showed us one outfit well put together can beat a closet full of hyped up pieces. His individual style choices never cease to amaze, and the outfit altogether is just overloaded with personality. From the functionality and outdoor vibes of the jacket and the belt bag, to the futuristic sneakers and the punk spirit of the patched denim.
We can’t forget about Harry Hudson either, who in just a couple shots also manages to preach this lesson. His outfit works perfectly into the Sheriff character, without overdoing it with cliche items or blatant branding.
The biggest takeaway from this video is that the clothes should complement your personality and character, not the other way around.
