With as many different options as are included in Pre-Fall collections — which are in stores now — deciding what pieces to buy can be a challenge. But Chloé designer Clare Waight Keller believes Pre-Fall should be a shopper's go-to collection for strong basics.
"Pre-Fall should deliver timeless staples that anchor the main collection," Keller said in an interview with Net-a-Porter's online magazine The Edit. "It's the best time to buy investment pieces because the main collections consist of more challenging cuts. Think of the 'pre' pieces as building blocks."
She also explained that her inspiration for Chloé's Pre-Fall 2013 collection — a vintage guitar book — informed not only the colors in the collection, but also its mixture of feminine and masculine shapes.
"I loved its eclectic '60s palette. The baby-blue against cream, pink and brown created a cool English vibe," she said. "Which in turn led me to explore the idea of '60s guitar girls and their androgynous style — the contrast of a tailored silhouette against a feminine softness fascinated me."

Diane Kruger joined the latest crew of ab flashers when she wore this Chloé embellished crop top ($2,165) during a breezy stroll in NYC over the weekend. But she did so in the chicest way possible — would you expect anything less from the fashion-loving actress? Her low-rise cropped denim helped accentuate her midriff, while cat-eye sunglasses lent retro flair. Then she finished with Chanel Diamante jelly sandals and a black satchel.

Depending on who you ask, coral can skew closer to the orange or the pink family. We're leaning toward the former, but there are so many cute coral picks in a whole rainbow of hues that we figured we'd feature them all. With this classic shade, pick one statement piece, and keep the rest of your look neutral.
"Bare-feet attitude of nonchalance, charm, and sport" and "fresh, salty with a glow" were just two of the Resort notes supplied by Chloé designer Clare Waight Keller. Of course, one look at the collection is enough to surmise the same. The collection's focus was split between two overarching themes: fluid tailoring and a more feminine take on the label's signature sportif aesthetic. Katharine Hepburn-style wide-leg pants, rounded coat edges, and collarless blouses served as evidence to the former, while the noticeable abundance of white guipure lace, multicolored candy stripes, and pretty embroidered details certainly pointed to the latter. The accessories — including the C bags (Clare, Charlotte, and Carey), loose gold chains, neoprene boots, and T-strap wedges — bridged the gap between the two themes, and if nothing else, maintained the beautiful, laid-back vision of Waight Keller's Resort collection.
