Correct or best matching spokes?

I am thinking about (re)building two sets of wheels and wonder what type of spokes would be most fitting both from a vintage perspective as well as what is available new today. But spokes are a quite blank knowledge area for me.
What is important to keep in mind for spokes? What are good brands or models today?

One set is for my early 70's Cinelli Speciale Corsa the other is for my mid 80's Daccordi.

Rims will probably be of the following: Mavic GP4, Mavic G40, H Plus Son TB14 and Pacenti Brevet.

Stellas for the Cinelli. Can't say for the Daccordi, too new for me.

If you don't want to be a vintage-weenie, DT Swiss ,Wheelsmith, Alpina are fine.
