At just 46, Renne had recently embarked on this new journey with Moschino. He assumed his role as the creative director on November 1st. There was a buzz of excitement around his first collection, which was scheduled to be unveiled at the Milan Fashion Week womenswear previews in February.
Massimo Ferretti, the chairman of Aeffe SpA, which owns Moschino, spoke of the atmosphere of enthusiasm and optimism that Renne brought to the team. He mentioned, “With Davide, we were working on an ambitious project. Even though his time with us was short, he quickly became a loved and respected member of our Moschino family.”
Renne’s career was a testament to his talent and dedication. Before joining Moschino, he spent two decades at Gucci, climbing the ranks to become the head designer of womenswear. His move to Moschino marked a significant transition, as he was filling the shoes of Jeremy Scott, who resigned in March after ten years of leading Moschino with its unique, wacky, and ironic fashion collections.
This loss is a significant blow to the fashion community. Davide Renne’s vision and creativity were just beginning to unfold at Moschino, and his sudden departure leaves many wondering about the remarkable contributions he could have made to the world of fashion.
