Are You Pronouncing the Designer Brands Correctly?


It is interesting and sometimes surprising to know what we used to pronounce for a designer brand such as Chanel or Givenchy far off from the native pronunciation. Today, let’s go through the below audio recordings for various brands and check if we are pronouncing the popular designer brands correctly. I hope you enjoy my post, learn the right pronunciation and come back for revisions. In any case if I made a mistake, please write to me and I will correct it. Some are hard to pronounce, really hard. Have fun!

These are the individual audio recordings. If you want a combined version of all 30 audio recordings, please scroll down to the bottom of the post to check out my YouTube video.

Postscript: These two stylish Louis Vuitton Murakami’s White Multicolore Monogram Canvas handbags were so well maintained. The Vachetta (untreated cowhide) leather trims were slightly turned to light honey patina despite the Shirley clutch was produced in year 2005/06 and Marilyn handbag was produced in between year 2006/08. When I revamped my website from OpenCart to WordPress, I forgot to backup some information so I can not remember the exact production year for these two beauties. They are no longer available for sales.
