Tucker Blair is a Washington, D.C.-based line of uber-preppy needlepoint belts and headbands–the kind worn by women named Muffy who summer in Martha’s Vineyard and bear lacrosse-playing children. Blair’s wares are certainly cute, but perhaps not the first line one would consider fitting in with Opening Ceremony. A store that features stuff by Chloe Sevigny and Alexander Wang hardly screams Cape Cod.
But that’s the brilliance of Opening Ceremony. Needlepoint belts and Band of Outsiders blazers sit seamlessly with Delfina Delettrez jewelry and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.
Comprised of five hand-sewn leather belts, this unisex line is totally wearable. One belt nods to Opening Ceremony’s international focus with a row of country flags, and another reworks the in-house label’s woodsy theme from resort 2012 into Vineyard Vines-style white bunnies on a black background. There is also a reinterpreted Guatemalan print in black, red, and yellow, a classic leopard print and a fluorescent chevron pattern,. Each is accented by brown leather and a gold buckle.
The line debuts on July 15, and will be sold exclusively in U.S. Opening Ceremony stores and online for $110 each.
