At Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld try to create a "new vintage" by using more traditional silhouettes and plenty of tweed but revitalizing the classics for modern day. However, the tweed wasn't just fabric, it was all carefully hand-crafted embroidery. This detail was not limited to tweeds, but was used in every look. At Valentino, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli also used classic staples from the brand mixed with extraordinary details while creating a newer, edgier feel that was more dark romanticism than airy and light.
So here are my absolute favorite, enjoy!
