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.
As well as provocative slogans, Pleasures usually include a piece or two indulging their love (perhaps unexpected) of floral patterns. The Pleasures Dejavu Woven Floral Shorts is the marquee floral piece from this season’s collection. With an all-over pattern rich in deep colours, the Dejavu Woven Shorts feel more like a worn tapestry than a piece of clothing. Cut from a heavyweight, woven poly fabric, these shorts also feature an embroidered Pleasures logo on the front, side slant pockets, an elasticated waistband, and a single back patch pocket.
