Davide Renne (@daviderenne) is the new creative director at @Moschino, parent group Aeffe confirmed this morning. The highly regarded Tuscan-born designer, who until recently was the head of womenswear design at Gucci, will start on 1 November. The appointment comes seven months after longtime designer Jeremy Scott's departure. Massimo Ferretti, Aeffe's executive chairman, said of the new hire: "We are confident that he will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of #Moschino, a global house with an Italian heart." Renne has been the Milanese rumour mill's favourite candidate to succeed Jeremy Scott as Moschino's creative captain for several weeks.
