prisca
Explanation:
Is this for a store, a boutique?

priscus -a -um [ancient , antique; of the old school, venerable; former, previous]. Adv. prisce, [in the old-fashioned way].


I would forget "totally"

Prisca is neuter plural and it means "things of yesterday"

Also it was used in Latin as a name Priscus, and has a very nice ring to it.
I would just go for "Prisca"

ciao
