In case you haven’t heard the news, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have been sentenced to one year and eight months in prison for tax evasion. But the design duo set the recent scandal aside in time to present their spring 2014 menswear collection in Milan.

Call me cynical, but I’m not exactly moved by Dolce & Gabbana’s latest endeavor. I’d actually use the term “latest” pretty loosely, as I feel like I’m having a bit of déjà-vu with yet another Sicily-inspired collection. This time, the Sicilian aspect that the team tackled was the region’s Greco-Roman ancestry, specifically emphasizing the idea of “Zeus and Apollo,” which was literally reflected upon a slew of classical printed shorts and t-shirts. While the pieces were beautifully done, I can’t help but feel a little bored. However, a more redeeming quality of the slightly repetitive presentation was the sharply tailored suits shown in various colors of shimmering silk; no matter what drawbacks accompany Dolce & Gabbana, the pair will always have a mastery of suiting.

Looking at Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2014 menswear collection is somewhat bittersweet, as legal troubles delineate an uncertain future for the  brand. But whatever may happen to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana at the hands of the law, let’s hope their next collection is a bit more inspiring.
