"My dad is awesome. I wouldn't be where I am right now if it wasn't for all of the things he's taught me," Jaden, who recently got his learner's permit, tells Billboard. "He's taught me a lot about driving and just about life."
Willow and Jaden Smith were styled by Billboard fashion editor Tasha Green and photographed by Olivia Malone in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, on Feb. 9, 2015.

Like her older brother, Willow takes a "natural" approach when she hits the small studio in their Hollywood home. "I don't like having any effects on my voice, I feel like a lot of Auto-Tune on it really covers up the essence of you and is like putting a cloud over real true emotion," she explains.

"Fabrics definitely inspire me and superhero comic book characters inspire my clothes," says Jaden. "That's why I like to wear long drapey things because I want to look like Batman and Robin. I want to hit the polarities of life, show people that there's a duality; there's two sides to everything."
"When I was younger, my brother and I...
"When I was younger, my brother and I toured with my mom's band, Wicked Wisdom, so heavy metal was one of the first types of music I heard a lot and I'm still really inspired by it," says Willow. "I'm into Lolawolf, Tune-Yards, the Runaways, Pink Floyd, and I freaking love Bikini Kill!"

"High-fashion nomad," Willow says of her style aesthetic. "I could literally climb a mountain and survive a couple nights in nature."

"If you're an artist," Willow explains, "the way you dress also gives people a vibe of how your music is and your personality."

"People have ideals and they have a certain thing that they expect because of growing up in a certain society and I'm just trying to break those ideals," says Jaden, who recently designed unconventional looks for his men's MSfTS line.

"The music Willow listens to is really really interesting," says Jaden. "She's really amazing, probably my favorite artist and we collaborate any time that we can."

"When I'm just by myself and walking around and just looking at the world happening around me, those are the moments that really inspire me," says Willow. "Those moments where the mind is completely gone and you're just looking at the beauty of something. When I'm crying and I'm sad about something, I'll just sit there and be like, this is the beauty of life."
