Jeremy Scott moves to Moschino

The label's new Creative Director

Jeremy Scott has been appointed Creative Director of Moschino, it was announced last night.

The a/w 2014 collectionn will be Scott’s debut and will be unveiled in Milan next February. Best known for his love of colour and print and over-the-top pop influences and for dressing everyone from Madonna to Lady Gaga, it will be interesting to see how Scott interprets the Moschino heritage. A statement from the label said, ‘This appointment respects the DNA of the brand as Jeremy Scott represents not only an eclectic and contemporary communicator but most of all a designer capable of re-interpreting the identity and the essence of Moschino.’

The American designer steps into the shoes of Rossela Jardini, who had been at the helm of the label since 1994. Moschino has thanked her for '...her enormous contribution in keeping the spirit of Moschino alive and at the forefront of fashion from 1994 to the present day. Her creativity and tenacity drove the brand on and Rossella Jardini will always remain a crucial part of our history.’

The Moschino s/s 2014 show in Milan last month, which marked the brand’s 30th anniversary and was Jardini's last collection for the fashion house, was a retrospective of its most iconic looks, complete with appearances by Erin O’Connor, Jodie Kidd and Gloria Gaynor.
