The inside story
This label is the little sister of the MOSCHINO brand, created by the designer Franco Moschino. This iconic designer grew up near fashionable Milan with dreams of becoming a painter. His entrance into the fashion world came thanks to another iconic Italian designer, Gianni Versace, for whom Franco worked as an illustrator for 6 years. Inspired by this, Franco began his own fashion line in 1983. The brand offered something different; its unusual designs caught the eye of the fashion world, and the attention grew. Franco was known to poke fun at high fashion, creating his own versions of other label's popular pieces. But Franco became one of the most popular fashion designers in the world because of his approach to denim. The diffusion line was introduced in 1987 as MOSCHINO JEANS and then revived in 2008 as LOVE MOSCHINO, imbuing the signature style with even more fun. The brand's Italian-chic focus collides with eccentric, joyful clothing, and today the creative director of the brand is famed pop-culture designer Jeremy Scott. He keeps the label true to its origins yet adds irreverent style to the mix, keeping the aesthetic as fresh ever.
Wearing LOVE MOSCHINO
If you're searching for fashion pieces that are fun yet high end, this is your go-to brand. It's for sartorially daring fashionistas who enjoy playful clothing and making their own style rules.
