Labelle, real name Label (ことの, Kotono), is the store clerk for GracieGrace in Animal Crossing: City Folk and a clerk for the Able Sisters in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The name Labelle might be derived from la belle, French for "the beauty", as well as being similar to her real name, Label; in turn, the name Label might be a reference to a clothing label, as well as rhyming with the names of the other two Able Sisters. In Japanese, her name comes from keito, meaning yarn, as well as the woman's name "Kate," while her real name Kotono is derived from "cotton".

Physical appearance[edit]

Labelle is a hedgehog with a black dress and "Gracie shirt" style neck tie. In New Leaf her tie pattern has been changed to an orange gingham pattern.


She is in charge of GracieGrace, as Gracie herself appears uninterested in maintaining her own store, due to her celebrity status. She is apparently a long-lost third Able sister, even though the other two have not talked about there being other family besides their mother and father who died when Mabel and Sable were very young, and despite any evidence of this sister never existing until now. Sometimes, if the player stays at the Able Sisters after closing, they can talk to Sable, and she remark how the player hasn't met half of their family. Also, if the player befriends Labelle enough, she will also start to share some past memories with them. Additionally, Labelle repeats things Mabel says such as, "You come back, now!", which Mabel says every time the player leaves her store. Labelle then stumbles and rephrases herself for a more elegant way to put it. If the player befriends some characters for long enough, they will tell the player that Labelle is the third Able sister, not naming her by name, but referring to her as a third Able sister who took a job in the city. She is the middle child of the family.


Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Labelle runs GracieGrace, as the real celebrity, Gracie, does not want to own a shop. Though GracieGrace sells more expensive items, Labelle says "it's a small price to pay for quality."

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Labelle is reunited with her family and now works at Able Sisters. She runs the right branch of the shop, which sells accessories. According to Sable, she claims that Gracie began to call her Labelle to make her name fancy while her real name is Label. However, Labelle stuck to the name given to her by Gracie.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U[edit]

Labelle appears as a trophy and one of the background characters in the Town and City stage.

NTSC-U: Able Sisters is a clothing and tailoring shop run by three completely different sisters. The oldest, Sable, quietly sews in the corner. The middle child, Labelle, sells accessories, and the youngest, Mabel, greets customers cheerfully. They fought in the past but have put that behind them!

PAL: The three Able sisters are like chalk and cheese...and thread, but running a clothes shop makes good use of their strengths: Sable works quietly at the sewing machine, Labelle sells accessories, and the cheerful Mabel welcomes people in. Despite their quirks, they get along well...usually.

Able Sisters Episode[edit]

The episode is a part of City Folk when the Able Sisters start to reveal that Labelle is their long lost sister.

Episode Requirements[edit]

  • Speak to Pelly at least once.
  • Befriend Sable (Speak to her for 12 days)
  • Unlock Nookington's
  • Buy at least one item from the Able Sister's Shop and GracieGrace.
  • Have Gracie conduct three fashion checks.

The Episode...[edit]

Throughout the story, the player visits Sable and Mabel, Pelly (Once), Gracie, Tom Nook, and Labelle. They reveal the story of their lives. While Tom Nook, Pelly, and Gracie blurt out secrets, but they do tell more of the Able Sisters' lives. Labelle reveals that she wanted to leave to become a fashion designer, but Sable got into a fight with Labelle, and Labelle left. Sable wanted to stick as a family after their parents died and Mabel was too young to understand anything back then.

The player should then talk to Mabel when she stops following him or her around in Able Sisters. She will sigh, and the player can either say "What's wrong?" or "Back to work!" If they say "What's wrong?" Mabel will say she got a letter from someone in her past. Then, the player should talk to Pelly. She will tell him or her that Mabel is getting letters from some person. Pelly also says that she does not want to be nosy, but she also wants to find out what it is all about. After that, the player talks to Labelle when she stops following the player in Gracie Grace. She will tell him or her that nothing is wrong and everything is fine. The next day, the player talks to Gracie (who will be there, but not do a fashion check) and she will say that her life has fallen off the catwalk and Labelle says chic is a baby chicken. The next day, the player talks to Mabel, and the day after that, he or she talks to Tom Nook, and the day after that, he or she talks to Labelle. Then, for the next three days, the player talks to Mabel and then Labelle.
