Isn’t It Dreamy?: Line and Label’s Spring Collection is Everything

It’s probably global warming, but the temperatures are rising. It seems like our fellow Greenpointers are loving the warm weather (me too!) because we’re all reaching for light leather jackets, ripped skinny jeans, and breezy pieces. It’s making me totally excited for spring. And, that’s where our local stand-by, Line and Label (568 Manhattan Ave.) comes in.


Line and Label’s Spring Look Book is just the icing on the cake for warmer temps: with gauzy pieces with a definite vintage flair, the collection has friendly and inviting silhouettes with a cheeky, flirty feel. Not to mention, some of these pieces double for their Ceremonial Collection – perfect if you’re tying the knot or just attending a bevy of weddings in the coming months.
