Gaby Basora launched her label Tucker back in 2005 with a collection of the most fabulous peasant blouses I’d ever seen. Their simple, chic cut in the softest of silk was a winning combination from the offset, with the blouse’s elegant silhouette acting as the perfect canvas for her vibrant prints. 
Seven years later, New York based Tucker is stocked at sought after boutiques and online destinations the world over and Gaby’s gorgeous application of whimsical prints has extended to dresses, trousers, skirts, tunics, blouses and shirts- in all their many varieties, even outerwear has had a look in!
But besides their major hanger appeal and fabulous fit I love how Gaby’s clothes encourage women to wear colour and make rocking a print a real doddle.
And you know what they say...the proof is in the pudding (though I hope I don’t look like one!) Here’s me wearing some of Tucker by Gaby Basora’s current Spring/Summer ’12 collection and one of my old Tucker faves too...

Old favourite: A Tucker signature peasant blouse worn with 18th Amendment jeans.

From the Spring/Summer '12 collection: 'the mini dress' in poppy print, worn with metallic Ked's trainers.   

From the Spring/Summer '12 collection: a 'slim-fit shirt' in abstract floral print, worn with (just seen) MiH Jeans jeans.

From the Spring/Summer '12 collection: a 'button wrap skirt' in butterfly print, worn with a Topshop blouse
and Chrissie Morris shoes.
