The cause of his death is still not known.

Last month, Aeffe S.p.A announced the appointment of Davide Renne as the new Creative Director of Moschino.

He had assumed his new position on November 1.

“There are no words to describe the pain we are experiencing at this dramatic time,” read a statement issued by Massimo Ferretti, Aeffe SpA’s chairman, as quoted by CNN. “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.”

Davide Renne had previously designed women’s collections for two decades at Gucci.

Moschino’s first collection under Rene’s direction was scheduled to debut during February 2024 Milan Fashion Week.
