With summer comes pool parties, and the world of League of Legends is no exception. The 2020 batch of Pool Party skins are set to arrive, bringing yet more champions into the fold. Riot released a video on social media teasing the champions in question in their new gear:

Speculation existed as to who the champions were, but they were quickly determined to be Orianna, Taliyah, Heimerdinger, Syndra, and a male Demacian champion - Jarvan IV, Xin Zhao, or Garen. Jarvan is favoured, as the beach umbrella is thought to substitute for his flag.

The Pool Party skin line features champions in beach and summer clothing and is often accompanied by changes to Summoner’s Rift, League of Legends' premier 5v5 battlefield. Other skins are soon to follow, as many look forward to the release of a Prestige Edition Zoe skin, and even more is set to follow in the second half of the year.
There is no word yet on when the new Pool Party skins will be out, however, we are likely to get a further look at the Pool Party skins soon since they’ll hit the Public Beta Environment (or PBE) before releasing on the live servers.
