Moschino’s New Creative Director, Gucci Casts Paul Mescal & Xiao Zhan In Latest Campaign, Bronx & Banco Launch Bridal, And More!

Say hello to Moschino’s new creative lead

There’s a new era coming at Moschino. Following the industry trend of appointing lesser-known number twos into the creative director spot, David Renne will take up the reins at the brand on November 1, joining from Gucci, where he spent the last 20 years. Until recently, the 46-year-old designer was head of womenswear design at Gucci, having initially began his career under Alessandro Dell’Acqua. Renne, a Tuscany native, succeeds Jeremy Scott who departed after a decade earlier this year. During Milan Fashion Week in September, the house enlisted four stylists to present a love letter of sorts to legendary founder Franco Moschino on the 40th anniversary of the tongue-in-cheek luxury fashion brand while they waited to announce the new creative director. Renne’s first outing will be in February during MFW. In a media alert, the designer said: “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 Davide Renne. “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”.
