is this the face of tax evasion?
Get it? Get it??
Alright, tax evasion is not a laughing matter and it's serious shit. Miuccia Prada, Ph.D. and her husband Patrizio Bertelli were under investigation for tax evasion from Italian tax authorities. Lets not shit on Prada's parade because this campaign is glorious.
According to Forbes, the couple paid a settlement of 420 million euros and probably a few Spring/Summer 14 pieces for good measure. Like most white collar crime, you can always hire enough PR to pacify media and pay authorities enough to avoid the orange jumpsuit. Like Martha Stewart, I'm sure Prada and Bertelli will be back to business as usual.
But wait... They're still under tax investigation and I'm hoping this taxing circumstance will manifest itself in Fall 2014.
