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.
A piece like the collared shirt might seem like a hard target for Pleasures’s brand of insolence. They prove that it’s not, though maybe in a more subdued way than usual. The Pleasures Nailed S/S Button Down is a short sleeve shirt with a sense of humour thanks to its bowling shirt-inspired, multicolour candy stripe design. The Nailed shirt also features front button closure; a single patch pocket on the chest, and a curved shirt hem.
