Unzipped: Gaby Basora

The Tucker designer and NYC marathoner unpacks her workout essentials.

As fans of her vintage-inspired clothing line, Tucker, can tell you, designer Gaby Basora isn't afraid to mix things up. Her lush silk prints grace floaty dresses and blouses, all of which make minimalist neutrals pale in comparison. Fittingly, the NYC-based Basora keeps her workouts equally eclectic:  "I love a hike, a country run, a walk for miles, a bike ride and laps in my granny's pool," she says. Frequent spin classes kept her strong enough to run the 2011 NYC marathon, and her brand of socializing often involves hitting the treadmill with a friend. We asked Basora how she manages to keep her style consistent while keeping her workouts fresh:
