Loving the Fall 2010/11 Tucker range…

so chic, so simple, so retro & so now…so comfortable…soo want it!

Gaby Basora is the NYC designer behind indie brand Tucker. She is known for her simple cuts and staple pieces which simply go with everything. In her new collection there’s a couple of powerful punches of brightness, but overall, the clothes lean toward soft tans, heather grays, and some beautiful plums. The latest collection is inspired by French writer Marguerite Duras after Basora scooped up to first editions over at Dashwood books on Bond Street, saying, “There’s a fierceness packed into the author-director that I find inspiring and alluring.” That spirit certainly translates to Liu Wen, who shines in crisp shots in the lookbook—pensive on a couch, coy in a stairwell, and sexy against a fireplace—and makes us long for a quiet evening at home. We heart the tomboyish (but still feminine) culottes, the perfect white wool trench, and a sandy, pin-tucked dress. After peeping the pics, you may want to find a first edition of your own.

Look out for new Tucker collection at Alexandra Del Lago from Nov 2010 (as it is the Amercian holiday line)

Thats me for now… so far no new photos of the Hyde Park store as they are delayed (surprise! It does happen in Johannesburg too!)… so hopefully by the end of the week…we’ll get to open our doors!!
