Dolce and Gabbana’s Next Line? Prisonwear

Is orange the new black for D&G? Designers lose prison term appeal

The men behind popular brand D&G were both given prison time for failure to pay taxes. 

Italian fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana lost the appeal of their jail sentence for tax convictions in Italy, their lawyer said Wednesday. The men were sentenced to 18 months in prison by a lower court after being found guilty of failing to pay 40 million euros in taxes owed to the Italian government last year. They must also pay a 500,000 euro fine.
