I guess it depends... If you have only one such label in your app, you
don't need a subclass or even a signal.
You can just assign your own function to the method of a QLabel instance, as in:
self.myClickableQLabel.mousePressEvent = self.on_QLabel_clicked
then define what happens there:
def on_QLabel_clicked(self, event):
Then again, if you need several such labels, creating a subclass
avoids code duplication.
