La Redoute is a French fashion brand in the UK, sharing it's Parisian style with the English crowd since 1995. I love this video they have recently made called ‘Language of Love’. Research has found the us Brits are apparently nowhere near as romantic as our French neighbours, even hesitating to say something as simple as ‘I Love You’ to our loved ones, be it a sister, mum or partner. Surprisingly, research has also proven that we would surely like to hear it more often and even better if in a European language!
I love the genuine, sweet and simple yet heart-warming responses of all the real people featured in the video when they come to know that the Parisian translation originally came from their friends, family or partner. Language is definitely not a barrier when it comes to expressing love as the tone of voice, body language and those puppy eyes are always enough. With so much cold and gloominess going around in the British weather throughout the year, we could surely do with some warmth and sunshine in our lives and what better than saying it out loud! Don’t wait for Valentine’s Day to display your emotions or an anniversary to say you love them. Life should be a celebration of love every day, however cheesy as it sounds.
On another note, having a quick look at La Redoute’s UK website, I can see why they would start such a campaign. Their range of clothes is so dreamy, cutesy, adorable and all with a hint of Parisian chic shot through it. Absolutely wearable with a bit of that sweet detailing that makes their outfits stand out. The versatility of their outfits means they can be sported at afternoon tea parties with friends or on a date night out with the boy, which we all really need more off. So whether it’s social media you rely on to get in touch with loved ones or a surprise visit, indulge more in the #languageoflove this year instead of waiting for Christmas for that annual meet up.
