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.
It only takes a glance at the label’s social media channels to see that Pleasures have long had an affinity for masks, obsessed as they are with identity and its concealment. It’s no surprise then that they have jumped on the opportunity to apply their irreverent graphics and slogans to something that also does much to hide one’s identity. They did not disappoint.
The Pleasures Space Face Mask in black is a reusable face mask constructed from two layers of polyester. This mask features ear loops and “Please Give me Space” printed on the front.
Made from 100% polyester.
