The most popular hat of the 1920s, the cloche (French for bell) is a snug-fitting hat worn down over the brow. Most are brimless, but there are examples with slight brims.
Invention of the cloche is attributed to both Chanel and Reboux. The style was first seen in 1917.
The flapper revival of the 1960s also saw the revival of the cloche.
