Art/Literary - Textiles / Clothing / Fashion / probblement une expression familère
English term or phrase: shiny shiny pantsuits
Il s'agit d'un ensemble veste + pantalon pour femme, qualifié de "shiny shiny".

Je pense à l'idée d'un vêtement "cool" ou "tendance", pourquoi pas "top" ou "canon" comme on dit familièrement en français.

J'ai trouvé cette expression dans la langue anglaise lorsque on parle du caractère "cool" d'une personne.

Merci d'avance.

Je ne parle pas US English though alors les USA veulent peut-être dire autre chose

agree  emiledgar: I've never heard "shiny, shiny" as an expression; I think it just means "très brillant""
