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.
Outerwear has always been where the Pleasures vision has come into full view, playing with textures, graphics, fit, and more to create designs that consistently unsettle preconceived notions of contemporary fashion. The quarter zip has become a favourite for Pleasures; the Pleasures Decline Quarter Zip adds to this lineage. Cut from super-soft sweatshirt fleece brushed on the inside, this piece features a tactile Pleasures rubberized print across a patch on the front. Here in the Muave colourway, this piece also features elasticated cuffs and a stand-up collar.
