Brands referencing their heritage
It seems popular now among brands to look back at their past and launch collections inspired by it. I'm no expert on fashion history and I'm sure you can find more examples - and perhaps some images from the archives to illustrate them?

Chanel SS 13: LBDs, pearls, little black jackets...

Saint Laurent SS 13: le smoking, chiffon, pu-ssy (I can't believe TFS censors this, hahaha) bows, safari style and the new-old name itself

Dior FW 12/13 haute couture: the elegant and luxurious style of Christian Dior, new look etc

All images from

I am too lazy and sleepy to google pictures, but Prada has been referencing herself for at least 2 decades.

She's keeping her past work relevant by re-introducing it an updated way. Buy Prada once wear it forever because it will never go out of style.
