The first stand-alone retail space of Tucker designer Gaby Basora is filled with a breezy array of her signature silk blouses and dresses in painterly floral prints. A former stylist, Basora started her label with a simple, loose-fitting blouse in 2006. The line has since grown to include more than a dozen simply cut dresses and slouchy, sexy shirts in various seasonal silks and delicate crocheted lace. Each print is given a name recalling the person or inspiration behind it: "Irene’s Geometric Café" (white and rusty pink stripes), "Lucy’s Lucky Day" (mod blossoms and blue polka dots), "Week in Goa" (streaks of fuchsia and yellow tie-dye), or "Gin Rummy Game" (a metallic-gold floral). The apparel hangs on simple racks in the tiny space, contrasting with paintings by local artists on the walls. Limited-edition runs of cashmere jackets and sheer silk lingerie offer alternatives to Basora’s signature silhouettes, and bins of carefully folded garments contain the previous season’s prints for $60 apiece.
