Davide Renne, who began his new role as the Creative Director of Moschino on November 1, 2023, has reportedly died of a heart attack. He was 46. In a statement Moschino’s chairman Massimo Ferretti said “There are no words to describe the pain we are experiencing at this dramatic time. Davide joined us only a few days ago, when a sudden illness took him from us too soon. We still can’t believe what happened.” Ferretti added that Davide Renne was both “loved and respected.”

Davide Renne was due to present his inaugural collection for Moschino next February during Milan Fashion Week, having previously worked at Gucci. At present, there is no news yet on who will succeed him.
