How to Pronounce Foreign Brand Names (or Not)

Fortunately, the Internet provides a handy cheat sheet that can save you the awkwardness of mispronouncing designer names. Yes, it's Pronunciation Manual to the rescue. Turns out we've been saying these names all wrong, according to the YouTube channel's flawless enunciation of L'Occitane, Versace, Gucci, and Yves Saint Laurent. Spot on.
