Garments & Goods by LABL VB & ContraVan.
The Collective has been a labor of love for ContraVan owner, Tommi Long and LABL owner, Lindsay Bangel. Tommi and Lindsay met after Lindsay moved back home from NYC. They were both operating their businesses under the pop up model creating unique experiences for their customers. Tommi and Lindsay connected personally and professionally and their businesses were ready for the next step. In 2018, the two merged their businesses, Contravan and LABL VB forming The Collective.
The Collective opened as a holiday pop up and has turned into a permanent location. The store offers something for everyone - women’s contemporary clothing, activewear, natural beauty and gifts as well as kids clothing.
A place to shop for all a girl needs.
Lindsay moved back from New York City to Virginia Beach almost four years ago. Her love for fitness and fashion began in NYC while attending her favorite group fitness classes including Barry’s Bootcamp and Soul Cycle. After leaving her job as a 2nd grade special education teacher, she recognized that there was a need for a fashionable athleisure store in the Hampton Roads area and settled on her hometown, Virginia Beach.
She first opened LABL VB within the Jim White Fitness and Nutrition Studio off Laskin Road and attended various pop ups around Virginia Beach. As Lindsay started to gain a following, she decided it was time to set up a permanent location. After connecting with Tommi Long of ContraVan, the two hit it off immediately. Together they opened a shared space where they could meet all their customers’ needs.
LABL VB offers fashionable fitness wear for all lifestyles. A cultivated collection of athleisure wear that is both fashionable and functional. From errands, to workouts, to nights out!
