Translating French fashion editorials to English is hard work….and not always as simple as it may seem. Yes Google translate does come into play – most certainly on this occasion – however – you have to be somewhat of a wordsmith or even have a minor ability to decrypt – as not every sentence or word translates well.

What does translate incredibly well is the photography. As it is said – “A picture is worth a thousand words” and so WOW – do these images do this statement justice. Bagsie (used in the U.K. to call dibbs, to claim first choice, by saying bagsie you are saying it is yours because you are the first to claim it.) on the clover print pant suit please! xxNxx
