The design team Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the men behind the Italian brand, look to be in serious trouble. Their brand, Dolce & Gabbana, had run into into legal matters awhile back, but the men decided to avoid the matter because they felt the case against them didn't exist.

To make things brief, the court case stems from the men evading taxes from Italian authorities. The court found the designers guilty of skipping out on an estimated $150 billion of taxes a year. And now, Dolce and Gabbana are looking at serving up to two-and-a-half year each in the clink.

Maybe this will be a Tupac-like experience for them, and they will reemerge on a new-found design fury? Stay tuned to see if the designers actually get sentenced.
