Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, founders of luxe Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, will go on trial in December for tax evasion.
The pair are accused of carefully dodging taxes by selling their business in 2004 to a Luxembourg-based holding company, Gado Srl, that they actually created in order to evade higher corporate taxes in their home country of Italy, according to Women's Wear Daily.
An investigation into the designers by Italian police began in 2008. Another probe was also launched into the company itself for alleged tax irregularities.
The design duo were ultimately charged with fudging their earnings statements and making off with about $540 million in extra income, but those charges were dropped last year when a judge decided there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute the pair.
