Finally! Yves Saint Laurent to become pronouncable!
For years I have struggled... in chic department stores, at fancy dinners, talking to fashionistas... they all shake their head in sadness and disgust when I try to pronounce the name Yves Saint Laurent.
This is how I've understood that it is supposed to come out of the mouth: [IIIV SÄING LOORANG ]
My trendy friends have given up on me.
Now, however, it seems things are looking up. The hottest fashion rumor today is that YSL is going to drop the Y and just become SL. So now I can start practicing just saying: [ SÄINGLORANG ].
I think I can do it. My friends will have to live with it.
