LABEL has always stayed true to its first love: simple garments, made well. They craft foundation pieces that live longer than a season or two and, thus, are truly treasures: timeless staples that last (and are made locally and sustainably as well). Shawna Robinson and Natalie Sydoruk returned to the runway this season to show their Spring/Summer 2013 line as part of The Collections, The Fashion Collective’s off-site series of pre-Fashion Week shows. Entitled “Del Mar Daze,” the presentation of sporty separates and laid-back dresses conjured up a California dream of white-hot sunshine and long, tanned limbs, along with sun-dazed sartorial snap decisions that vacations are known for. LABEL’s trademark tongue-in-cheek details and styling were as refreshing as a jackknife dive into a cerulean pool, from the long-sleeved button-up defining the waist of an elegant maxi dress to the knot of fabric exposing the midriff of a flirty LBD. It’s those small details that make you want to keep your LABEL staples around for a long time, whether it’s the standard jersey pencil skirt slashed into a sexier tulip cut, a southwest-inspired pattern by local artist Doug Brown enlivening a sundress, or the panel of delicate lacework splayed across the back of an emerald-green shift. When it comes to LABEL, their first love is a perfect fit.
