"I'm a jock at heart
in mes talons," says Gaby Basora, the designer behind the much-loved
New York City brand Tucker, whose fans include Maggie Gyllenhaal and Leanne
Shapton. So it's no surprise Basora decided to collaborate with the
Brazilian skateboarder and artist Fabio Tirado, who is known
for repurposing old skateboards into fashion accessories. Exclusively
for Tucker, he's created stripy buttons that Basora's using on colorful
cotton tops (available in January at her SoHo flagship). "I love the
beauty of recycling the fierce energy of the boards and merging that with the
built-to-last quality of a Tucker blouse," she says. Though Basora's
known for her silk prints and sweetly feminine silhouettes, this isn't the
first time she's drawn a line between Tucker and athleticism. In 2013, BMX
racing sisters Jade and Hazel Altheide starred in a short film Basora made,
featuring flouncy tunics and floral shifts on a BMX track in New Mexico. And
in August, Basora ran the Paris half marathon wearing—what else?—a Tucker
blouse.   Designer Gaby Basora has found a way to
incorporate artfully repurposed skateboards in the feminine blouses at her New
York City fashion shop, Tucker. Check out the travel-inspired designs here.
