What differentiates Black Label from other plus size luxury collections is the focus on the higher end of the plus size range. A number of retailers offer fashions up to size 22. But the Black Label collection gives full-figured women modern, luxurious looks up to sizes 34W and 5X. "It's all about fitting women beautifully, while providing an elevated collection they just can't get anywhere else," says head of design, Kate McKee. "Our design team is dedicated to creating fresh looks that really flatter, within well-edited collections that are on-trend for every season.

"This fall season," Kate adds, "Black Label elevates your wardrobe with luxurious, high-quality statement pieces. Start with a few standouts like a georgette sleeveless blouse paired with a slim ponte knit pant. Choose styles that express your personality, then build from there. Our Black Label collection features incredibly versatile looks designed to be mixed in unexpected ways, season after season."

The Collection is designed with a keen eye for elegance. Styles include a modern mix of sophisticated soft layers with leggings, tailored separates with bold blouses, and beautifully detailed denim. Among the season's best updates are faux-leather pieces, including a lace-trim jacket, a peplum top with exposed back zipper, and a pencil skirt with ponte knit back. Coordinated separates may be worn from head to toe, but look especially fresh mixed with other Black Label styles.

Black Label by Catherines is available at select Catherines stores and online at, with prices ranging from $52$179.
