This is not fake news - the newspaper print is back. One of the most polemical trends of the noughties decade, the print first appeared in Christian Dior's Fall 2000 collection. Never one to shy away from controversy, then-designer John Galliano was supposedly inspired by the homeless as well as by an Elsa Schiaperellli print made up of her own newspaper clippings. The print was then made famous by Carrie Bradshaw, who wore one of Galliano's newspaper designs no less than twice in Sex and the City.

For the Spring 2019 collection for his eponymous label, John Galliano relived his inspiration from almost two decades ago and re-launched several newspaper pieces.

And he's not the only one to feel the noughties nostalgia. Designers from Versace to Diane von Furstenberg to Ashley Williams and Vans have released their own versions of tabloid throwbacks.

The newspaper print has also gained traction on Instagram, where influencers and celebrities like Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been seen sporting the look, taking over the space that was once dominated by animal prints.
