Dolce & Gabbana Closes Nine Shops in Milan

By Roxanne Bildan Partners in crime, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce have shut down their nine shops in Milan on Friday, with the words, “Closed for Indignation” emblazoned in the windows of the designers’ shops. Dolce and Gabbana were given 20-month jail terms for evading taxes of about $1.3 billion by selling their brand to a Luxembourg-based holding company in 2004. However, the duo is planning and working to appeal these convictions. And so, they have created their own moment of silence. The two designers said in a statement: We are no longer willing to suffer undeservedly the accusations of the financial police and the income revenue authority, attacks from public ministers and the media pillory we have already been subjected to for years. Rest assured, the shops will only be closed for three days as an act of “protest.” Questionable behavior, but money needs to be rolling in for the next upcoming taxes. Wouldn’t want a part two to occur again! 1297444496524_ORIGINAL
