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.
Classic Pleasures fare, the Pleasures Tongue Tin Ashtray displays the label at their provocative best. This tin ashray features a large photographic print of a person’s tongue with cigarette ash on it. How fitting. Other features include Pleasures branding on the rim and recesses in which to rest your cigarettes.
