MILAN — Italy’s tax authorities are accusing Belgian designer Dirk Bikkembergs of evading tax payments of 111 million euros, or $139.6 million at current exchange rates.
Bikkembergs’ lawyer, Francesco Giuliani, told WWD the allegations stem from an audit carried out in 2006 and 2007 by the Guardia di Finanza, an Italian police force under the authority of the Minister of Economy and Finance that investigates tax evasions and related violations.
