Return of the Dior Newspaper Print.
Reviving the revered newspaper print from John Galliano’s tenure at the Parisian house, Kim Jones and longtime collaborator Daniel Arsham recently unveiled a new editorial for Dior Men which puts the nostalgia number front and centre.
Debuted during the label’s spring/summer 2000 Haute couture show, Arsham noted in an Instagram post how the print reflects his own penchant for reinventing everyday objects commenting;
“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!”
