Davide Renne. Indeed, the Italian has been announced this morning as the new creative director of the iconic fashion house MOSCHINO.

Jeremy Scott, the previous creative director of the firm, left a huge void when he left, and Davide is ready to fill it with his extensive knowledge of the industry, having worked at Gucci in the past as director of the women’s fashion department for more than 20 years, among others.

From November, the Polimoda graduate will join the company and will start creating his first collection, which will be presented in February 2024 during Milan Fashion Week. What will the new Moschino look like? Will it be related to the old one? Many questions are up in the air, but if the Tuscan-born man has been named as such, it is for a reason, and partly because of his sophisticated vision, as Massimo Ferretti (executive chairman of the house) commented in the press release: “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.”

Renne, of his exciting position, has only said the following: “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. 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.”

The anticipation is high and with it the desire to discover what Davide Renne will design for Moschino. More coming soon…
