Jeremy Scott to Exit Moschino
Leaving behind a 10-year tenure as the House’s Creative Director.
Per WWD, Massimo Ferretti, executive chairman of Moschino’s parent company Aeffe, said: “I am fortunate to have had the opportunity of working with the creative force that is Jeremy Scott. I would like to thank him for his 10 years of commitment to Franco Moschino’s legacy house and for ushering in a distinct and joyful vision that will forever be a part of Moschino history.”
Scott added that his time at the House was “a wonderful celebration of creativity and imagination.” Indeed, it was, as the designer — who joined the luxury Italian House as its Creative Director in 2013 — has created a number of memorable catwalks and moments during his tenure.
From the Palace collaboration, Katy Perry’s burger dress and styling The Sims, to creating the cleaning product-inspired iPhone case, Spring/Summer 2018’s floral-mania runway and Fall/Winter 2016’s chandelier opulence, the designer proved there is no limit to creativity.
What does it mean for the House? As we’ve seen with a number of departures as of late (Alessandro Michele leaving Gucci, Riccardo Tisci exiting Burberry, or Raf Simons closing his eponymous label), there’s likely to be an internal shuffle and a new visual identity helmed by who could take the brand. As for Scott, no word has been said on his next move — but there are plenty of Houses that are looking for a revival.
