The designer re-launched the iconic bear of Moschino, and now it has been reimagined as a table lamp for Kartell.

Moschino by Jeremy Scott
Since the 1990s, when storied fashion firms began sprucing up their image by recruiting A-listers from outside the company, observers of the fashion industry have spent endless hours guessing who designers will be hired by which labels.
Appointments can be puzzling at times, but every once in a while, a designer and a home are such a wonderful match that you wonder what took them so long.
As an example, Jeremy Scott, 38, was designing his first collection for Moschino when we met in Milan the week before Thanksgiving. Scott had been appointed creative director of Moschino in late October.
So, the American designer who became famous in the '90s for tweaking upscale ready-to-wear with cheeky iconography and brand spoofs is now running the Italian label that became famous in the '80s for doing the same thing.
This rom-com couple was further introduced when we learned that Scott's first job after graduating from Brooklyn's Pratt Institute's fashion program in 1996 was as an intern for Moschino's then-head of PR, Michelle Stein.
Michelle Stein, who is currently in CEO of Aeffe, the parent company of Moschino, called Scott last summer to give him the job.
