The fashion world has also taken notice of VOWWS’ strong aesthetic sensibilities. In 2019, the band performed during the Comme Des Garçons runway show for Paris Men’s Fashion Week. The relationship with Comme and its retail partner, Dover Street Market, flourished and the band designed an exclusive merchandise line for the brand.
On the heels of a partially completed world tour with Poppy, VOWWS wrote the menacing, angular DEFCON 1 anthem, Impulse Control. The accompanying video (directed and edited by the band) shot partially in LA’s Little Tokyo just prior to shelter, flawlessly captures our current dystopian climate of paranoia, mania, absurdity and occasional gallows humor.
