Despite trademark provocative prints, pattern clashes and general impudence, new collections from LA-based misfits Pleasures arrive with little fanfare. This new season from the label is no different, in fact, without any uniting name or theme, it might be even more subdued than previous releases. Seemingly the only release information available were a series of posters on Instagram inspired by lacklustre ’90s catalogue imagery. Far from satisfied with churning out new provocative slogans and graphics, the label always finds novel ways to surprise.
Pleasures have always found unique but simple ways to bring sportswear-inspired pieces into their provocative universe. Here in the black colourway, the Pleasures Collapse Sweatpants are a new addition to the label’s range of pieces that almost look like they might be suitable for exercise. The Collapse Sweatpants feature striking contrast stitching; a wide elasticated waistband with adjustable drawstring; ribbed cuffs; side seam pockets; a single back patch pocket; Pleasures branding screen-printed down the left leg at the front and the word “escapism” on the back.
