The designers have made no comment since yesterday’s courtroom ruling, though Dolce & Gabbana representatives released a statement last night. Stefano Gabbana, an avid Twitter user, has been busy retweeting supportive tweets and messages:
12. Like this one describing Italy as “a sideshow shaky from exorbitant fees.”
@stefanogabbana uno stato equo e solidale proprio.. Un baraccone traballante dalle tasse esorbitanti! La gente subisce ma non reagisce!!!!
13. And this high praise, which describes Gabbana as an “Italian genius like Michelangelo, treated like a criminal.”
Quello dell’amico @stefanogabbana e8 altro caso d ingiustizia!Genio italiano al pari di Michelangelo trattato da malfattore.Nonticurardiloro!
14. This one, which implies “rockstar” judges taking bribes:

15. Also this one, encouraging the designers to “hold their heads high.”
@stefanogabbana non si puf2 dire che il tatto sia il loro punto forza…non vi abbattete sempre testa alta e fierezza!
16. And let’s not forget this, which seems like a valid logistical concern:
