Priscilla Royer channeled a good girl vibe for pre-fall, taking her inspiration from Catherine Deneuve’s role in Roman Polanski’s 1965 psychological thriller “Repulsion” — the part before she starts murdering her suitors, that is. “It’s pretty, rather than sexy,” said Royer.

Innovative rain-proofing techniques, reversible solutions and an overwhelming choice of shapes, as ever, meant there was something for everyone here, and for every occasion.

For a walk in the park, there were royal blue, beige, russet and gray wool designs, some adorned with tartan or checked ribbons attached with belt buckles, others in all-over blue tartan.

For work, there were wool fedoras circled with a houndstooth ribbon, or for the more outgoing, a reversible cloth cap in the same check fabric with the house’s familiar cat’s ears, beige on the one side, black and white on the other for maximum versatility. A dusty pink velvet beret was also particularly cute.

Out on a date, meanwhile, the pretty girl came into her own, sporting a cap with a jacquard rose motif, another with a wrap front in a metallic lurex fabric and a third molded version, with the cat’s ears, covered with little bows.

The rose motif was more understated but very feminine when embroidered onto a ribbon wrapped around molded wool designs. The floral motif was also found on a selection of wool and silk scarves, a recent introduction for the Chanel-owned house, designed to be worn in combination with its hats for a mix-and-match look.
