We'll discuss 52 commonly mispronounced names from the car
Fashion and luxury industry and of course how to pronounce them properly
Brands dominate the car watch luxury and fashion industry
however
Sometimes in conversation when they come up people are not sure how to pronounce them and you hear all kinds of variations
often the reason is that the country's
Origin is not the country you're from and so it all gets tangled up that stirs up the question
Should you pronounce something in the original way?
It was meant to be said or you adapted to your local surroundings
The reality is no matter how you say it people will judge you for it
If you say catchy instead of Cartier
some people may look at you as an arrogant prick on the other hand if you say Cartier instead of khaki
People may think of you as a peasant
so often really the choice what to say is yours and it may even depend on the situation you're in but
It never hurts to know the proper pronunciation of a brand name
So without further ado here the brand's you may be mispronouncing Audemars Piguet
It's a watch friend and it has a soft G automatic PG next up voom MSE
It's not Baume & Mercier. It's boom MLC
The ampersand is a because it's French and it's very soft
It's a mid-range watch brand, but it's always good to pronounce it boom. Merci next up the fashion house
Balenciaga it used to be spanish valente Agha with a th but today it's French owned and they prefer to say
Balenciaga, you've also probably heard of the leggy. It's not break wet. Its braggy
then there is shopper shopper is without the deity and it's not shop hard or
Choppered it's schiappa. Then there is a Cartier
Cartier not Cartier the R comes from the back of your throat, which is typical French
That's Kathy Kathy. Next up is Shanna. It's CH a and e l
Yes, it sounds simple
But when you go to China, you'll see a lot of shirts saying channel number five with a double end in my opinion
There's not many things as embarrassing as wearing fake brand-name shirts that are spelled incorrectly
And our famous French luxury brand is Christian Dior such Christian Dior. It's Christian Dior
Again, that soft R in the end. Not the American R
then there's comme des Garcons which means as much as like boys and
It has that little hook at the bottom of the sea
but you just say comme des Garcons comme des Garcons next up the champagne brand don't perineum and

Fashionable. It's pronounced fashionable that a really great brand is go. Yeah, it runs good. Yeah without the D at the end
It's not to go hard. Next up is John Franco ferry?
It has an axle on the E which sometimes people think it may be French
But it's Italian and the are here are pronounced at the front of your tongue
So, it's John Franco Ferry John Franco Ferry now I'm back to French is called
Givenchy Givenchy
Givenchy
It's all more difficult because you have to G and the C and it's pronounced
Givenchy Givenchy
Givenchy probably one of the most well known luxury brands is a mess
It has an age in the beginning but in French usually that's silent. So it's not Hermes or LMS
It's ms. The name originally stems from Greek mythology
But today it's more synonymous with this French luxury brand the next brand. Is you blue
It's not who blush or Hublot
it's you blue again silent H brand with great French tailoring tradition is long than
It's not Lanvin as you might think it's long then again pronounced lomba
Lanvin brand that produces really great soaps is
L'Occitane, it's very confusing because you have to seize in a row, which is not something you're typically seen English language. So it's called L'Occitane
L'Occitane next up is long gene. It's not long jeans or on jeans is long gene
long gene, very similar brand is
not shown long shot
Long shot. It's not long champ. It is long shown next up. It's probably one of the most popular brands out there. It's Louie
Vito

Louie we don't together, it's Louie Vuitton. The next brand is the most famous Champagne house in the world and
It's consists of two words. It's a boy without a tee and
shondo
however, when you pronounce them in a row
It's called wet a Shanda you say that he because there's the a in the middle and so it's wet say shondo
Wet - oh no
What a Shanda the next brand is known hurry down jackets and winter gear and it's often mispronounced as Mon clay
However, the correct pronunciation is more clear
more clear again

so
Here is how to pronounce them originally

He bought a car he liked it and he kept ordering more and decided to become a car dealer
however, he wasn't happy with the performance and wanted to tune the cars and
race them and so he did and very
Successfully his daughter's name was Matt cedis. And so he named his cars Mercedes
It's a bit similar to
AMG which is kind of a tuner for Mercedes cars. And by the way, AMG in German is called AMG
So yell neck was very demanding and Daimler was annoyed by him, but Maya thought he had good ideas
And so they worked together on performance cars
And so they had a thirty five horsepower performance car in 1903
