In a year marred by colossal uncertainty, we’ve never needed people to say it straight more than now. In 2020, facts are key. It is in no way controversial to say that Los Angeles-based label Pleasures have never been ones for subtlety. For this reason, the title of Alex James and Vlad Elkin’s label’s most recent collection, “metaphorically speaking,” is kind of confusing. With pieces featuring slogans that initially strike with the force of political declaration, we’re left looking for more. In short, Pleasures are fucking with us. Some things really are still business as usual.
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 Pleasures Power Fleece Vest is a highlight outerwear piece this season. Constructed from a soft cotton-poly blend fabric, this vest features a large screen-printed back graphic with Pleasures branded embroidery at its centre. Other features include a split front kangaroo pocket adorned with Pleasures branded embroidery, front zip closure, and a ribbed neckline & bottom hem.
Made from 60% cotton, 40% polyester.
