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.
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 Spike Chore Jacket adapts the classic workwear silhouette to the LA label’s insolent aesthetic. Cut from a heavyweight cotton canvas, this jacket displays Pleasures’ affinity for embroidery with a large cactus graphic embroidered on the back alongside Pleasures branding. Here in the black colourway, the Spike Chore jacket also features a corduroy collar, two patch pockets on the chest; two patch pockets on the front with flap and button closure; front button closure; button-fastened cuffs; and branded metal buttons throughout.
