How to pronounce Lanvin… and other international brands

You’re in love with a Bal-Mayne skirt and you have just bought a Rod-Art-Ee sweater – you also can’t work out why you get odd looks whenever you talk about your Give-En-Chee wallet…

Chances are, you’re getting it all wrong. And you’re not alone! Even the most fash-forward have a hard time grasping the correct inflection of a tricky surname or up-and-coming French designer.

I found this little gem, and it helped me make sense of a few names I have never attempted to say… I hope this helps!!!

Heart & Soul

Burberry has always been known for it’s iconic check print.

Usually it’s met with divided responses – some think it’s an upmarket, beautifully Brit brand, others stand firm on it’s place in Chav society.

Whether you like it or not, open your mind and check out  the new heart print they’ve bought out this year….I for one, LOVE it.

I’m calling it now, and suggesting Heart Print is going to be a big trend in the months to come. When researching, I saw a lot of UK and international sites are stocking apparel with the print, but it hasn’t quite come over the seas just yet for us Aussie shoppers.
Never fear though, if you want to wear the print you can shop online for these items to get the look – without spending the big bucks on the Burbs.
