After its collaborations with Crocs and Reebok, and after creating an underground hit with its capsule created together with Marilyn Manson, PLEASURES has unveiled its FW20 collection with a lookbook with a definitively dark look that confirms it as one of the edgiest streetwear brands around. The theme of the collection entitled Metaphorically Speaking is the symbolic figures of our culture, religious and not, whose images decorate a range of apparel that expresses the more punk and iconoclastic soul of the Los Angeles brand founded by Alex James and Vlad Elkin.
From the t-shirts that reproduce Jesus' oleographies to flannels embroidered with birds in flight, through a Mona Lisa printed on toast to skulls, swords and devils that cover outerwear and sweatshirts, the most avowedly graphic items in the collection exhale a maudit aura. Other more regular products round out the looks, including a remarkable pair of all-over floral print pants. The collection is also enriched by Pawel Jaszczuk's artworks while the accessories are made in collaboration with Taikan.
