At 17 years of age, after fleeing home to the Marangoni Institute in Milan and making ends meet, the young designer Franco Moschino took up freelance illustration for fashion magazines. Just three years later he started working for the late, great Gianni Versace - a valuable experience that lasted 6 years of his life.
When Franco launched the men's Moschino collection in 1983, it instantly captured the attention of the media, celebrities and many other designers. Later, Moschino was coined the 'bad boy of fashion,' as his designs were a significant social commentary on the state of the industry, making use of ironic slogans and irreverence towards colour in his line of hoodies, sweatshirts and tees.
Today Moschino for men is a wide collection including men’s Moschino Belts made from real leather that features the Moschino lettering on their signature buckle.
