Moschino parent company Aeffe has announced the appointment of Davide Renne as artistic director of Moschino.

His appointment comes seven months after the departure of Jeremy Scott who exited the brand last March after a decade. A graduate from the Polimoda fashion school in Florence, Renne joined Gucci in February 2004 after working for almost four years alongside Alessandro Dell’Acqua. He designed women’s collections for two decades at the Rome-based house under the aegis of Alessandro Michele and Frida Giannini, eventually rising to Head Designer of Womenswear.

In his new role Renne will oversee women’s, men’s and accessories for Moschino and will report to Massimo Ferretti, Executive Chairman of Aeffe. The 46 year old Tuscan designer is the Italian house’s fourth main designer, following Jeremy Scott, Rossella Jardini and founder Franco Moschino.

‘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,’ said Massimo Ferretti, Executive Chairman, 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. 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 said of his appointment.

Renne will officially assume the role of Creative Director at Moschino on November 1st, 2023. He will present his first collection for Moschino during the 2024 Milan Fashion Week in February.
