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.
As well as provocative slogans, Pleasures usually include a piece or two indulging their love (perhaps unexpected) of floral patterns. The Pleasures Studio Floral Beach Pant in Blue is the marquee floral piece from this season’s collection. With an all-over pattern rich in deep colours, the Studio Floral Beach Pant feels more like a worn tapestry than a piece of clothing. Cut from a heavyweight, woven poly fabric, this pant also features an embroidered Pleasures logo on the front, side slant pockets, elasticated waistband with drawstring, back welt pockets, and a tapered leg.
