December Designer Focus: Tucker by Gaby Basora

Tucker, which is derived from its definition “A piece of cloth draped over the bosom,” is the perfect expression of the collection, where each piece is intended to emphasize the woman wearing it and is not specific to any style or state of mind. Tucker is free-spirited, brave and nostalgic.
The daughter of a skilled knitter, she left Seattle at 15 to finish high school in Paris. Later, she studied writing and literature at Sarah Lawrence College. The designer says she used to enlarge candy wrappers to see how they’d work as a print for a blouse. Her work is consistently inspired by all things visual.

American stylist-turned-designer Gaby Basora launched Tucker in 2005 and rapidly gained international acclaim for her whimsical prints and signature peasant blouse. Expect quirky-cool floral, animal and abstract-prints on this eclectic collection of diaphanous blouses and shirt dresses and printed skirts that have turned into an international design sensation.

“The thing about my pieces is that they are easy to mix up,” said Basora. “Our clients are clever and play with pieces. A lot of my customers wear certain items with the edgier designers"— A great collaboration opportunity with the other great pieces found at McMullen that mix and match to create the best style for you.
