This quaint spot feels less like a store and more like a friend’s dressing room, with couches and framed mirrors nestled between racks of locally made printed dresses, blouses, tops, and pants. Yet it’s a closet that could be raided by everyone from a stylish grandmother to a young, trendy shopper—Tucker’s feminine, modest shapes in eye-catching patterns have a wide appeal. The storefront serves as a retail, wholesale, and design space for the line, meaning variations of select pieces may be available in the back, and one-off experiments-gone-right are often showcased. Designer Gaby Basora has also curated the store’s collection to include shoes from Jerome C. Rousseau, jewelry from Melissa Joy Manning, and art books from Dashwood Bond. Shoppers can take in the wall art from Basora’s close friends, which includes prints from photographer Tim Groen and paintings from Marina Pavlutskaya.
