ON THE HOT SEAT: The investigation into alleged tax evasion by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana has wrapped up but notices of indictment will soon follow for an assortment of people, including the designers, according to Italy’s daily Corriere della Sera. Dolce’s brother Alfonso, a shareholder, and managing director and board member Cristiana Ruella are among the others expected to receive notices. As reported, Dolce and Gabbana could be personally liable for more than $1 billion in unpaid taxes and fines, though the designers have always denied any wrongdoing. They are charged with tax evasion and abuse of rights relating to the 2004 sale of the Dolce & Gabbana and D&G brands to the designers’ Luxembourg-based holding company Gado Srl. A spokeswoman for the company could not be reached at press time.
