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.
Tees have always been the bread and butter of Pleasures’s mission to provoke controversy. The Pleasures Mirrors Longsleeve Tee fits into this history that dates back to the label’s first collection. Cut from soft cotton jersey, this regular-fit long sleeve tee features a large graphic screenprint on the front depicting what looks like an abandoned oilfield, a stylised Pleasures logo and the words “Slow Decay” beneath as a caption. Here in the black colourway, this long-sleeve tee also features a ribbed crew neckline and cuffs.
Made from 100% cotton.
