Moschino has announced that Davide Renne will take over the role, unveiling his first collection for the Maison in February 2024.
Moschino seems to have finally found its next heir. This is Davide Renne, a Tuscan designer who graduated from Polimoda who, thanks to his notable career in the sector, will take the reins of the creative work so far built by the iconic Jeremy Scott, who just in March announced his farewell to the fashion house after 10 years at its creative direction.
Since October 2013, Scott has been at the helm of the brand’s most unforgettable collections, collaborations and runway shows. His ironic and parodic approach to everything that revolves around the fashion industry and consumerism consistently kept the soul of Moschino alive.
Since his farewell to the brand, Moschino’s creative team has curated the latest collections while everyone has waited with curiosity for the appointment of the next director.
“Today we welcome Davide to the Moschino family. We have all been impressed by Davide’s extremely sophisticated vision of fashion’s power to create a living dialogue with the world around us and by his deep understanding of the House of Moschino’s legacy and of our codes. He is a brilliant designer and a special human being.” said Massimo Ferretti, executive chairman of Moschino’s parent company Aeffe, in a press release.
“Franco Moschino had a nickname for his design studio: la sala giochi — the playroom. This resonates deeply with me: what fashion — Italian fashion especially, and the House of Moschino most of all, can achieve with its enormous power, should be accomplished with a sense of play, of joy. A sense of discovery, and experimentation” says Renne in a statement.
“I am very conscious of the honor that Mr. Ferretti — a gentleman who has been almost fatherly in his ability to listen and establish a dialogue during our encounters has bestowed upon me in taking charge of the House founded by one of fashion’s great minds. So, thank you Mr. Ferretti for giving me the keys to your playroom. I can’t wait to begin — we’ll have fun. Together”.
Renne will take on the role of Creative Director at Moschino on November 1, 2023, with his first collection debuting for Autumn/Winter 2024 during next year’s Milan Fashion Week.
