Misfit hero, songwriter, and junior philosopher Willow Smith seems to defy categories. But when asked to describe her aesthetic style, she had a specific category all lined up and ready to go: “High-fashion nomad.” In an interview with Billboard, she explains:

High-fashion nomad. I could literally climb a mountain and survive a couple nights in nature. That’s a requirement for my clothes because one day I was on the freeway and I saw a mountain, so I literally just pulled over and climbed it. If you’re an artist, the way you dress also gives people a vibe of how your music is and your personality.

In sum, requirements of clothing include: suitable for mountaineering, helpful for overnight survival, and able to communicate artistic-vibes reports. Layers implied.
