    mom's a french teacher, so here's what i've learned...gne-if you're american pronounce it like nyeh...so...ligne would sound like-lee-nyeh...which i believe means line, no?

    so it the cambon line from chanel...

    which is the chanel ligne cambon collection, sorry, i'm not familiar with it :flower: [/b][/quote]
    It does mean line. But its pronounced more like LEING. Both the "ee" sound and the "ng" sound are distict for the french language.

    Then again I shouldnt be giving lessons. My french is far from perfect. My mum is from Monaco and when ever I go to Monaco to visit my grandparents they make fun of my accent :angry:

    uhm i dont think it would be appropriate to mention but over here there is a very specific clientele thats targeted and that buys anything with a BIG label/logo :innocent:[/QUOTE]
    I think oversized-flashy-look-i-used-my-rent-money-to-pay-for-this-bag trend is finally reaching its peak...... what a relief for that 'specific clientele' :lol:

    "Logos are going little, says eBay’s fashion spokeswoman Constance White. You’ll have to get up real close to drool on someone’s bag. "

    People sure seem to love those logos. There are animals: the crocodile, penguin and puma. Symbols: swooshes, crowns and triangles. And letters: G's, C's and LV's.

    "We are definitely at the peak," says Constance White, fashion spokeswoman and style director for eBay. But don't look for logos to tumble off the mountain anytime soon. Instead, designers are moving to mini sizes -- the "opposite of supersize," says White.

    Shoppers still crave the status that these symbols carry, but in a more intimate way, she says. "You have to get right up to them . . . be talking to them and then, ohh, 'She's carrying a Prada handbag.' "
