MILAN — Several Italian designers, including Valentino Garavani and Gianni Bulgari, allegedly appear on the list of Swiss bank HSBC account holders stolen by former employee Hervé Falciani, according to media reports here.

Falciani, based in HSBC’s Geneva offices, pocketed 127,000 files of bank accounts in 2008 with the intention of selling the information. He is now collaborating with the French police, according to Italy’s daily Corriere della Sera, and, in turn, Italy’s Guardia di Finanza, an Italian police force under the authority of the national Minister of Economy and Finance, has obtained a list of 6,963 financial positions for a total of more than $6.9 billion dating back to the 2005 to 2007 period.
