Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana Sentenced to Jail

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana Sentenced to Jail

Dolce & Gabbana - Runway - Milan Fashion Week Womenswear S/S 2013

The judgment has come down in the case against Dolce & Gabbana, and the result is not what the designers would have hoped: They have been found guilty of tax evasion and sentenced to prison.

WWD is reporting that Italian judge Judge Antonella Brambilla has ruled that designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana will serve one year and eight months in jail for tax evasion. (Depending on how that jail time would span, it could conceivably cover at least four major fashion seasons).

The prosecution had initially requested that the designers each serve two and a half years, while also requesting time for Domenico’s brother and board member Alfonso Dolce, board member and general director Cristiana Ruella, and finance director Giuseppe Minoni. Dolce & Gabbana’s accountant, Luciano Patelli, may be sentenced to three years as the “main orchestrato of the evasion scheme,” per WWD. Charges stem from the 2004 sale of Dolce & Gabbana brands to the Luxembourg-based company Gado Srl, which prosecutors allege was done for the sole purpose of evading Italian taxes.

This jail time is on top of a $440 million fine levied in 2012 related to the same charges. The designers’ tax troubles date back to 2010, when they were first slammed with the lawsuit that was initially dropped due to lack of evidence before being reopened by the Italian Supreme Court last year.

Dolce and Gabbana are expected to appeal the decision; the Twitter hashtag #freedolceandgabbana has already taken off.

Born Miguel Jontel Pimentel to an African-American mother and a Mexican father in the Southern California harbor town of San Pedro, he says reading the book The Four Agreements, by spiritualist Mexican author don Miguel Ruiz, was a turning point. Ruiz’s theory is that most of our emotional struggles come from beliefs about ourselves that were assigned to us by our parents, our peers or society. Miguel says the book made it easier for him to question what he “should” sound like or look like, even if it confounded record label marketing execs. “The book was super pivotal for me,” Miguel says. “It’s so simple that it’s profound.”

He decided to go grass roots. Taking cues from hip-hop mixtape culture and the indie DIY tradition, he self-released a three-EP series called Art Dealer Chic, unveiling some of the music that would later be featured on Kaleidoscope Dream, including “Adorn,” which he recorded in his bedroom. “If you look at art dealers historically, they were kind of in control of what was making an impact culturally,” he says about the project. “This was my own anti-establishment way of saying, ‘F*ck you, I am my own business. I decide what is good and what is not,’” he says. “I wanted to reconnect to my peers, the people that I hang out with, the ones that go to the same bars, listen to the same music, look at the same blogs, will be at that art gallery, will be at that show. Those people, the ones that I wasn’t touching before, finally I had their attention.” The EP series, the second batch of which will start coming out in July, did help him connect with the indie set, who were, lucky for him, high on other avant-R&B artists like Frank Ocean and The Weeknd at the time. Art Dealer Chic also scored Miguel the brass ring of the indie industry — a positive review on Pitchfork. “It’s like a love-hate relationship,” he says of the music journalists who have both exalted him and dismissed him as R&B schlock. “It’s like they’re kind of f*cking with me, but kind of not.” (Pitchfork’s review of Kaleidoscope Dream coolly called Miguel’s lyrics “the stuff of unbearable rom-com montages,” though the album scored a rating of 8.4 out of 10.)”
