CONISON: OUR CHAT WITH HIGH-END STREETWEAR LABEL FOUNDER, CONNOR MORTON 

By Blake Holmes

A celebration of the LA dream, Conison is an up-and-coming, high-end streetwear brand from Melbourne, Australia. 
Recently, we caught up with Founder and Creative Director, Connor Morton, to chat vision, inspiration and what’s in store for the year ahead. 

TELL US ABOUT CONISON..

Conison is a high-end streetwear and design brand. 

At the heart of Conison is a message of inspiration. I want to encourage people to express themselves, providing an avenue for them to explore their own sense of style and creative potential through fashion and design. 

WHAT’S YOUR WHY? 

I’ve always endeavoured to express my creativity through outlets available to me, from DJing and music, to clothing customisation and art. I think everyone deserves this opportunity and my dream is that Conison will provide that for others; an inspiration source that spreads positivity and reinforces the idea that everyone has the power to shape their reality. 

WHAT’S IN STORE FOR YOUR UPCOMING COLLECTION? 

Collection 2 Rise & Fall is a two-part capsule. This collection celebrates an ascension to your highest self and the fall of negative energy. These ideas are expressed in my messaging and I’ve catered to both the NZ/Aus and US/Euro markets, with different materials and designs. 

WHO/WHAT INSPIRES YOU? 

There are countless brands and creators that fuel my fire. Designers like Reese Cooper and Heron Preston, brands like Riot Hill and photographers like Kyle Caulfield to name just a few. 

HOW DO YOU STAY MOTIVATED? 

I believe motivation is something you have to seek constantly. This can be challenging at times and the interruptions of this year have been a prime example. 

Regularly contacting my mentors, listening to podcasts, and painting have kept me in the zone this year. There’s always motivation to be found if you look hard enough. 

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU? 

Every day is different but I start and end them in the same way. I usually wake up with a warm/cold soak to get focused, then have breakfast while watching motivational content on YouTube. From then I work ‘til i’ve felt i’ve done enough, which means late nights a lot of the time. I also work other jobs and fit in time at the gym or some form of exercise each day. I end the day with business content on YouTube to get inspired for the day ahead.

WHAT’S THE BIGGEST FINANCIAL STRAIN WHEN RUNNING YOUR OWN BRAND? 

Being a one-man band with no backing at 22 has been a struggle. There are definitely financial challenges and they’ve taken a lot of practice, help from mentors and learning to overcome. In saying that, I’m feeling confident in the belief that now is the time to be bold, take risks and bet on myself. When you believe in your brand and the message you’re trying to share, anything is possible. 

WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED? 

My mentor sent me a message a few weeks back. I think it’s spot on and something I struggle with at times. “Your art is not about how many people like your work, your art is about if your heart likes your work, if your soul likes your work, it’s how honest you are with yourself”. I try to follow this ethos daily and remind myself of this at times I’m questioning my vision and creative direction. I’ve implemented this into my work daily and it’s become more authentic as a result. 

WHAT’S NEXT FOR CONISON? 

The sky’s the limit. I want to push creative boundaries, not just with Conison but in the global fashion and lifestyle brand space. This means everything from painting collections and exclusive pieces to furniture. 
Most importantly, I want to continue telling the Conison story in an authentic way. Giving people a story to truly connect with is what drives me and the best way to keep people engaged and on-board for the journey. 

I’m learning and growing every day and Conison will continue to evolve with me. I can’t wait to share it with everyone.

LEAVE US WITH A FAVOURITE QUOTE..

I’ve got a few. ‘Ignore the boos, they usually come from the cheap seats’. This one has been really important to me. As a young person, you often face a lot of negativity and doubt from others about your ability to step outside the norm and succeed. I’ve learnt not to take this to heart and stay true to myself, which is something I think we should all strive to do. 

Another favourite is, ‘an arrow can only be shot forward by pulling it backward’. This one’s all about resilience to me, and the idea that on the other side of struggle and hardship is success, fortune and prosperity. I try to remember this with every minor setback and keep a positive mindset no matter the circumstances. When you do, nothing can discourage you from achieving your dreams. This is what Conison is all about.

JLO × COACH

By Cassandra Yany

Coach unveiled its holiday campaign Tuesday with the central message “Holiday Is Where You Find It.” It emphasizes the message that holiday is a state of mind regardless of how you’re celebrating this year.

There is no doubt that 2020 has been a unique year for everyone. Coach acknowledges this through the campaign and underscores that during these unprecedented times, the meaning of the holidays remains the same no matter how different festivities may look this year. They encourage fans of the brand to “cherish the big things, celebrate the small things.”

“Holiday Is Where You Find It” highlights Coach’s belief in optimism, finding joy in the little things and seeking comfort in togetherness and family traditions. The campaign will be presented in a series of short vignettes and images showcasing the cast celebrating new and old traditions. 

The cast consists of Jennifer Lopez and Michael B. Jordan and their families, as well as ambassadors such as Kiko Mizuhara, Jeremy Lin and Yang Zi.  Other members of the Coach Family featured in additional content include Camila Morrone, Megan Thee Stallion, Quincy, Yuna and Ramla Ali. 

Jordan is depicted celebrating Kwanzaa with his parents Michael B. Jordan Sr. and Donna Jordan, brother Khalid Jordan and sister Jamila Jordan-Theus. A video shows the family setting up the lights outside to spread holiday cheer. “Hanging out and giving back, honestly that’s at the top of my list,” said Jordan. 

Lopez is seen on Coach’s Instagram with her mother Guadelupe Lopez, and her children Emme and Max Muñiz. “I find holiday in the smiles on my kids’ faces,” said Lopez. “Number one on my to-do list is to count my blessings.” She is photographed wearing the Beat Shoulder Bag and the Holiday Cityscape Intarsia Sweater.

Lopez’s involvement in the holiday campaign follows her first collaboration with the fashion brand for the Coach X Jennifer Lopez Hutton Bag which launched earlier this month. The bag was designed with Creative Director Stuart Vevers and inspired by Coach and Lopez’s shared values of authenticity and inclusivity. It combines Coach as a modern-day icon with Lopez’s unique approach to style.

The holiday campaign spotlights the Beat Shoulder Bag, inspired by the downtown attitude of New York. The purse has three compartments for organization and a secure snap closure. The crossbody strap allows for hands-free wear, while the interchangeable chain strap lets you carry the bag. Crafted with soft leather, the Beat Shoulder Bag is available in a variety of colors and patterns, with distinct embellishments accenting some of the versions.

Also presented is the new Hitch backpack and belt bag for men. Each comes in three different color variations. The backpack is available in solid black and patterned black/ gray, brown/ black and brown/ tan displaying Coach logos, while the belt bag is sold in solid amber and patterned brown and brown/ tan with logos. Made of leather and canvas, the backpack is spacious and has multiple pockets for accessories. The bag is durable and lightweight, making it multifunctional and perfect for anything from work to travel. The leather belt bag was created with a hands-free design, and the zip closures and exterior pocket make essential items easily accessible. The bag can effortlessly be dressed up or down.

A social series will feature the archive-inspired Swinger Bag, which was first introduced in the ‘80s and has been reimagined for today. The short-strap shoulder bag is available in both nylon and leather. The bag is sold in a number of solid colors and a patterned version containing Coach’s signature jacquard. It is secured with a zipper, along with the iconic turn-lock closure. The Swinger Bag also has a detachable strap for those who want to style it as a crossbody.

Coach worked with a global family of creatives to bring this campaign to life. This team included photographers and directors Ryan McGinley, Renell Medrano, Hao Zeng, Brad Ogbonna, Takako Noel, Gen Yoshida, Fan Xin, DJ Furth, Zhangmeng, Jian LV and Christelle de Castro.

BILLIE EILISH – NO TIME TO DIE

Five-time GRAMMY® Award winning Darkroom/Interscope Records artist Billie Eilish has today revealed the official music video for ‘No Time To Die,’ the original song written for the 25th James Bond motion picture, No Time To Die.

WATCH | LISTEN

Directed by Daniel Kleinman, the visual interweaves footage of Billie Eilish with scenes taken from the highly anticipated upcoming James Bond motion picture. Watch HERE.

The song is out via Darkroom/Interscope Records and was produced by Billie’s brother; fellow multi GRAMMY® Award winning FINNEAS alongside Stephen Lipson, with orchestral arrangements by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley, and guitar from Johnny Marr. 18-year-old Eilish is officially the youngest artist in history to both write and record a James Bond theme song. Listen HERE.

Speaking on Billie Eilish and FINNEAS’ involvement in the film’s title track, No Time To Die producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli revealed “Billie and Finneas have written an incredibly powerful and moving song for No Time To Die, which has been impeccably crafted to work within the emotional story of the film.”

Billie Eilish said, “It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor.”

FINNEAS adds, “Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives. There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live and Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007.”

The film’s director Cary Joji Fukunaga shared, “there are chosen few who record a Bond theme. I am a huge fan of Billie and Finneas. Their creative integrity and talent are second to none.”

In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

No Time To Die will be released in theaters globally from November 12 in the U.K. through Universal Pictures International and in the U.S on November 20, from MGM via their United Artists Releasing banner.

Billie Eilish and FINNEAS will also be joining Daniel Craig for James Bond Day with a very special interview and performance on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday, October 5.

‘No Time To Die’ is out everywhere now.

In this auction, one of the fine watch highlights was the sale of a Rolex 1979 Cosmograph Daytona Solid 18K Yellow Gold 37mm Watch sold for $37,500. The handsome timepiece is one of the most highly sought after and collectible models of the brand and is crafted of solid 18k yellow gold.

Davido – Fem

Multiple award-winning Nigerian superstar DAVIDO today makes a glorious return with “Fem” his first solo record of 2020. “Fem,” which means “be quiet” in Nigerian street slang, is the first official single from his forthcoming 3rd studio album A BETTER TIME arriving in October.

Produced by Napji, “Fem” opens with a victorious bang of brassy horns which flows throughout the mid-tempo song full of celebratory energy. The song boasts a message of confidence despite the opinion of others – Davido simply tells them to “be quiet.”

2019 marked a monumental year for Davido, born David Adeleke. It kickstarted with a sold-out date at London’s prestigious O2 Arena – making him the first solo African artist to do this. He created waves across America with his smash hit single “Fall” which is certified gold in the US and in Canada. He later release his sophomore album “A Good Time” which has achieved over 1.2 billion streams to date globally. Now, Davido gears up to release “A Better Time” in October 2020.

About Davido:

Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Nigeria, 27-year-old Davido (real name David Adedeji Adeleke) has been a champion for the continent of Africa. He chose to chase his music dreams and whilst doing so earned over 30 awards including a MOBO for Best African Act, MTV EMA for Best International Act, three MTV Africa Music Awards, two BET Awards and two Nigerian Teen Choice Awards for “Top Featured Artist” and “Choice Male Artist.”

With an unmatched work rate, Davido has delivered back to back hits since his musical debut in 2011. Breaking out with successive singles “Back When,” “Dami Duro,” “Gobe,” “Aye” and “Skelewu,” the latter would enjoy attention from Major Lazer and Wiwek who went on to remix the single. His musical elevation would see further global collaborations with Chris Brown, Pop Smoke, Summer Walker, Young Thug, Mayorkun and more. With a discography attesting to over a billion global streams and 400 million video views, the Afrobeats forerunner has very much established himself as a force to be reckoned with.

Katy Perry New Album

Smile is the title track from Katy Perry’s new album, which you can now listen to here. Smile was released on August 28 by Capitol Records. Katy speaks about the album in the cover story of the current issue of People. She recently performed at the Tomorrowland Around the World digital festival and did a SiriusXM Hits 1 Celebrity Session.

Praising her new single, Rolling Stone observed, Over an upbeat, dance-driven groove to match the positive vibes of the lyrics, Perry extols the virtue of perseverance. Billboard hailed Smile as empowering uplifting and ET noted, Smile is a buoyant, brassy ode to finding your happiness again. 

Fans who pre-order the album here will instantly receive Smile plus Daisies, the Gold-certified Never Really Over and Harleys In Hawaii. Exclusive Smile-themed merchandise bundles are available now. Tune in to Katy’s #SmileSunday livestream at noon on August 16 to see Katy share additional details about Smile. 

Since Katy Perry’s Capitol Record debut in 2008 with One of the Boys, she has racked up a cumulative 45 billion streams alongside worldwide sales of over 45 million adjusted albums and 135 million tracks with her albums One of the Boys, Teenage Dream, PRISM, and Witness, and her latest singles, gold-certified Never Really Over, Small Talk, and Harleys In Hawaii. Katy was the first female artist to have four videos surpass a billion views each.  

Her videos for Firework and Last Friday Night have over one billion views, while Roar and Dark Horse have surpassed the two billion mark. Katy’s 2015 Super Bowl performance is the highest-rated in the event’s history. She is one of only five artists in history to have topped 100 million certified units with their digital singles and the first-ever Capitol Records recording artist to join the elite RIAA 100 Million Certified Songs club. 

Aside from being one of the bestselling musical artists of all time, Katy is an active advocate of many philanthropic causes. In 2013, Katy was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador as a result of her commitment to improving the lives of children worldwide. From traveling to Vietnam and Madagascar to highlight the needs of some of the worldߣs most vulnerable children, to recording PSAs about the importance of empowering girls and supporting adolescents living with HIV/AIDS, as well as raising awareness for UNICEFs emergency relief efforts, Katy has used her powerful voice to advocate for children and support UNICEFs mission to ensure every childs right to health, education, equality, and protection. She was awarded with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award in 2016. 

On August 20th, Katy Perry shared a new song, What Makes A Woman, which celebrates the indefinable quality that women bring to the world. Produced by Johan Carlsson and directed by frequent collaborator Tim Sekiguchi, Katy performs a moving, stripped-down version of the song.

In other news, Katy spoke with the Los Angeles Times‘ Amy Kaufman for an in-depth feature that appeared on the cover of last Sunday’s Calendar section. The story traces the rebirth of Katy, noting that she has emerged from depression and heartbreak to craft an album that is still quintessentially Perry: buoyant, playful, neon pop.

J. Cole × PUMA

After the highly anticipated launch of J. Cole’s signature basketball sneaker for PUMA – the RS-Dreamer – the two will be releasing additional, limited-edition colorways of the signature shoe in August.

The first release – ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’ – is inspired by the grit, determination and hard work needed to accomplish one’s dreams, despite the obstacles faced or time passed. With countless hours putting pen to paper and throwing shots up behind closed gym doors, J. Cole knows the grind like no other. So, Cole and PUMA Hoops are paying respects to putting in that work with this next Dreamer drop – The RS-Dreamer Blood, Sweat and Tears.

The newest drop features an audacious red colorway, the Dreamer logo and PUMA Hoops tech; these kicks are ready to grind, as long as you are too. Nothing worth having comes easy. Available in limited quantities, the new launch comes after the initial debut of the RS-Dreamer in July, which sold out online and in-stores within minutes.

Retailing for $125, the limited-edition RS-Dreamer ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’ will be available starting this Monday, August 17th at 10:00 AM EST exclusively on PUMA.com and FootLocker.com
