Both Jaden and Al Banawi share a common interest in their creative outputs. Famed for his avant-garde and non-gender binary style, Jaden was spotted killing it in a Bedouin-inspired jacket created by Al Banawi, who’s known for her androgynous and inherently genderless designs.

 

“We talked about fashion, music, life. I showed them around D3 and they got to have a look at my new collection”, says Al Banawi before adding, “I love Jaden since his first album, he’s so talented!”.

 

Earlier this year, she launched Banat, a collection celebrating female empowerment; while this month, Jaden—who has long-been sensitive to environmental issues since childhood—presented his sustainable clothing line Forces of Nature’ with G-Star RAW, engineered with sustainable materials and design innovations.
