Tuscan-born designer Davide Renne will officially become the Creative Director of Moschino in November 2023.

Following Jeremy Scott‘s 10-year tenure at the Italian fashion House, the leadership role was left vacant and saw Moschino’s in-house team stage a 40th-anniversary fashion play at Milan Fashion Week in September. Moschino has announced that Davide Renne will take the position, revealing his first collection for the House in February 2024.

Renne is more than qualified, having helmed the womenswear department at Gucci for over two decades. The Polimoda graduate worked under Alessandro Michele and Frida Giannini after four years with No. 21 founder Alessandro Dell’Acqua.

As per a press release, Massimo Ferretti, executive chairman of Moschino’s parent company Aeffe, said: “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: Franco used to say that bad manners are the only true bad taste, and getting to know Davide, I have been struck, not only by his obvious talent but by his kindness, his sensibility. We are confident that he will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of Moschino, a global House with an Italian heart and a truly unique DNA in the luxury industry.”

“Franco Moschino had a nickname for his design studio: la sala giochi — the playroom,” says Davide Renne on his appointment. “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. 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 greatest 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’s appointment comes as a slew of Creative Directors have departed their positions, giving new designers an entrance. Recently, Sarah Burton ended her 26-year tenure at Alexander McQueen and showed her final collection at Paris Fashion Week. Central Saint Martins graduate Seán McGirr will take her place while Chemena Kamali will enter Chloé, and Walter Chiapponi has exited Tod’s.

Will Renne expand on Moschino’s playful attitude introduced by Scott, or will he take a different direction? Only time will tell.
