JADEN & WILLOW TAKE LONDON/PARIS/MY LIFE

The Smith siblings are honestly entombing me too much right now. We’re two days into this week and they were already handed a British Fashion Council ‘New Fashion Icons’ award by Edward Enninful, OBE and Skepta. They were in stellar winning company last night too: Demna and Guram Gvasalia picked up some statuettes, as well as Alessandro Michele, Simone Rocha, Craig Green and Molly Goddard.

That’s not all, of course. Jaden is having a pop-up sale plus meet-up for his ‘MSFTS’ collective label at colette Paris tomorrow. You can get a hoodie and maybe ask him what ‘pop runk’ is if you can manage to claw your way to him.

Jaden even dropped a new video on Monday, named ‘Fallen’, from his upcoming ’Syre’ album/project. The moody tune and video give us neo-Westworld as young Smith stumbles through ‘Calabasas in 1867’. He’s seen throwing up in embroidered leather Gucci & dancing in Nike Air Mags around a Kid Cudi record, as one does.

Oh, and he has also managed to break a body part, it seems?

Meanwhile, Willow is killing it in the Vogue Paris December issue that dropped yesterday, shot by Inez & Vinoodh and guest-edited by Karl Lagerfeld.

And while big brother was picking up their award in London, Willow was performing my favourite lullaby at the Chanel ‘Paris Cosmopolite’ event at the Ritz. It’s just great to see these two prosper while never losing track of the (ethe)real issues and I’m going to go ahead and hand them 2017 on a platter already.
