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.

Marshmello Sports Premiere Apparel

By Cassandra Yany

Marshmello sported a Premiere Apparel Tie Dye Hoodie to promote his new song and music video with Demi Lovato. The electronic music artist and pop singer took to Instagram on Thursday to share the release of their track “OK Not To Be OK” and the accompanying music video.

The color-infused “Rain Forest Hoodie” pairs perfectly with the DJ’s electronic sound, and is one of the brand’s many tie-dye signature styles. Premiere Apparel creates clothing with colorful, mesmerizing designs and comfortable fits. 

Marshmello and Lovato teamed up with the non-profit movement Hope For The Day for this collaboration. The pair are working with the organization— whose motto is “It’s OK Not To Be OK”— to start a conversation about mental health and eliminate the stigmas and judgment that go along with it. While promoting the song, Lovato shared a message via Instagram on Thursday, which was also Suicide Prevention Day, expressing her struggles with mental health and encouraging her followers to check in with themselves and loved ones.

Hey Violet’s “Better By Myself”

HEY VIOLET RELEASE NEW SINGLE “BETTER BY MYSELF” TODAY

ON HI OR HEY/CAPITOL RECORDS

OFFICIAL VIDEO ALSO DEBUTS TODAY HERE

TICKETS ON-SALE TODAY FOR UPCOMING SHOWS IN SAN FRANCISCO, L.A., NYC, AND WASHINGTON DC

“Better By Myself” is the first new music the Los Angeles-based alt-pop band has released since

their critically acclaimed 2017 debut album From the Outside.

Hey Violet release a new single “Better By Myself” today on Hi or Hey/Capitol Records and available for streaming and purchase from all digital partners. In addition, an official video for the song, directed by Marcella Cytrynowicz, debuts today. Watch it HERE. “Better By Myself” which was co-written by Hey Violet, Gabe Simon, and producer Daniel Nigro, is the first of four new tracks the band is set to release throughout the Spring and Summer.

“Better By Myself” captures the duality inherent in feeling invincible in solitude because you don’t need anyone, but recognizing that perhaps being totally alone isn’t necessarily the best path forward. “It’s about being in an unhealthy relationship and having the courage to leave, but realizing maybe you’re isolating a little much,” says Hey Violet frontwoman Rena Lovelis. “I think we need to fall in love with ourselves before we fall in love with anybody else and that’s why the song sounds so celebratory. It’s about finding that happy medium between I don’t need anyone, which tends to be a defense mechanism, and being truly okay with yourself.”

Hey Violet’s 2017 debut album From the Outside featured the singles “Guys My Age,” which has amassed over 230 million global streams, “Break My Heart,” and “Hoodie,” which is approaching 200 million streams. The album racked up critical praise, including accolades from The New York Times, which called it “one of this year’s best and most provocative pop albums.” Stereogum noted that it “has plenty of attitude thanks to Lovelis’ vocal and lyrical presence,” and NYLON declared, “I challenge you to find a debut album as explosive and technicolored as Hey Violet’s From The Outside (the album) pulses with cheeky hooks and middle fingers to the status quo. Lead singer Rena Lovelis’ voice is arena-shaking. You’re in for one hell of a ride.”

Over the past few years, Hey Violet, which is Rena Lovelis, her sister Nia Lovelis (drums), Casey Moreta (lead guitar) and Iain Shipp (bass) have steadily built an engaged fanbase with their powerful, immaculately crafted alt-pop songs. “Guys My Age” was named one of the Best Songs of 2016 by The New York Times, who called it “teen-pop’s revenge: an urgent dark song about sexual rebellion” and one of the 20 Best Songs of 2016 by V Magazine. In 2017, Hey Violet was also nominated for an iHeart Radio award for Best Underground Alternative Band, dubbed an “Artist Primed For A Breakout” by Billboard, and named “Artist To Watch” by The Guardian, PopCrush, and more. The band has racked over half a billion streams worldwide, sold out their North American headline tour and performed on both The Late Late Show With James Corden and Late Night With Seth Meyers.

Hey Violet will perform several upcoming shows to celebrate the release of their new music.

All dates are below. Tickets go on sale today here.

May 28th San Francisco, CA – Swedish American Hall

May 30th Los Angeles, CA – The Troubadour

June 5th New York, NY – Bowery Ballroom
