First revealed during Dior Men’s Spring/Summer 2020 Paris presentation in June 2019, we now have an editorial look at the French fashion house’s reissue of its iconic newspaper print that was first created for its millennium Spring/Summer haute couture show in 2000, now reworked by Kim Jones in collaboration with Daniel Arsham.

Echoing Arsham’s temporal projects, Dior’s befitting newspaper print of actual press releases that Christian Dior wrote himself evokes an imaginary future with the disruption of an added caption “collection été 3020,” which translates to “summer collection 3020.” In the collection, the print makes its way onto apparel and accessory, notably the masculine interpretation of the Dior Saddle bag, a wide scarf, T-shirt, and soon-to-be classic B23 high-top sneaker.

On Instagram, Arsham writes: “The process of working with @mrkimjones and the @dior team on this collection wasn’t a straight line. Many ideas came in and out but early on Kim sent me the original files from the newspaper designs of the Galliano Spring Summer 2000 collection as inspiration. 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. The new print forms a small capsule within the overall @dior collection I made with Kim. Happy to see it finally out in the world!”

Take a look at the photos above for a closer looker at the reissued and reworked newspaper print. The Dior Men Spring/Summer 2020 collection is now available via the brand’s official website.
