Introducing the Dior Homme summer 2020 collection – see all the images of the full collection here.

If you're a follower of high fashion and adore the history behind Dior, you'll know about the Newspaper print. And if you didn't know, it's definitely not new by any means.

The iconic pattern was first debuted by John Galliano on the spring/summer 2000 Hobo Chic Haute Couture runway. Twenty years later, the print is making a comeback, all thanks to the creative director of Dior Homme, Kim Jones.

The newspaper print is featured in the summer 2020 collection and we are obsessed.

The summer 2020 Newspaper collection is in collaboration with contemporary artist Daniel Arsham. It's not a carbon copy of the original, it's actually been re-worked into something new. The print is made out of press releases written by none other than Christian Dior.

Daniel Arshame shared on Instagram: "The idea of turning an everyday day item like that into a textile felt similar to the way in which I try to reinvent everyday objects in my own work. I reworked the original 20-year-old print with new text and drawings and altered the dates as well."

When can you get your hands on it? It's available for purchase now at Dior online.

There's a ton of must-have pieces in the new collection... and we know it's going to be hard for you to say no.

The coveted B23 sneakers are definitely in the spotlight of this collection. It's accompanied by a gorgeous Saddle Bag, an array of wallets and handbags, a nylon organza jacket and socks.

Staying true to the theme, the colour pattern is decorated with shades of beige and cream. If you're into minimalist colourways, then you're going to want every single thing in this collection.
