I am a Jean Queen, I love what happened when women started wearing pants. I am celebrating my own jubilee on this side of the Atlantic with J Brand soft lilac jeans.

I am a print-mixing aficionado but have lately been loving a head to toe look in one print. I adore the ‘chevron cart wheel print’ short sleeve blouse and drawstring pants in the same print. Together they mimic one fierce louche jumpsuit, channeling Loulou de la Falaise. I love a gal in a uniform - it is my summer look.

Clarins beauty flash balm. Upon a recent visit to London, my pal Sophia exclaimed, "My goodness have you had work done on your face, Gab you look so "good!" Enough said!

Summer breezy and eternal effervescence with the softest cotton voiles over beautiful lingerie from Mimi Holiday by Damaris. Twirls and swirls with a glass of rose or a mojito mean bright mornings and bright nights.

Gaby Basora is the founder and creative director of cult NYC label Tucker.

Originally beginning with a perfectly fitted printed silk blouse in 2005, her label has evolved into seasonal collections of beautifully cut separates, dresses and jumpsuits featuring strong signature prints.

Tucker continues to be characterised by an exciting array of contradictions, a look that's never contrived but carefully considered, is agile yet bold and made from silks that are luxurious but not precious.

Visit my Facebook page to watch a stunning video by Kinga Burza, created to showcase the summer range.

Tucker is now sold in store and online at Selfridges.
