Rhythmical mixing-and-matching helps comprise the silky, vintage-inspired, and somewhat uncanny Spring 2012 collection created by Tucker. As stated by designer Gaby Basora, “the Tucker Spring 2012 collection is based on a South American woman who ran a vaudeville theater, the royal Tanenbaums, and traveling troupes of performers.”
A peek at the lookbook has me dreaming of travels to an strange land.; the clothes are breezy, with the company’s trademark silk crepe de chine and tailored staples. There is certainly no shortage of prints, patterns, or color either. I adore the delicate florals, crimson polkas, bright tribal ikats, and most of all, the emerald paisley (above).
“I want the clothes to feel mysteriously familiar, like a resurfacing memory you never want to forget.” (Gaby Basora)
For me, Tucker did exactly that for Spring 2012. There is something to this collection that demands musing over.

I am a friend of your fathers and wanted to say hello and tell you how much I am a fan of your articles. I love the excitement in your writing and the fantastic descriptions of each piece of clothing ——– especially the “Tucker” collection. I owned a small clothing boutique, and the year I opened it “Tucker” was introducing its first collection and I was so in love with it I brought it into my store ——- and what a success it was! Last week my daughter took a few days off from work and came home to spend them with me and we had fun shopping —– and guess what we bought —- Tucker blouses! Keep up the good work. I look forward to reading your newsletter every day and hope to meet you one day when I get myself into the city.
Talk to you soon,
