I bet IZ*ONE fans out there (or should I say WIZ*ONEs) are wondering, what does ‘La Vie en Rose’ actually mean?
Well ‘La Vie en Rose’ is actually a rather poetic phrase used in literature. ‘La Vie en Rose’ is French and directly translates to ‘Life in Pink’ but ‘La Vie en Rose’ is better put into context as seeing a pair of ‘life through rosy (pink) glasses’.
‘La Vie en Rose’ illustrates a state of mind where everything looks and seems happy and joyful around you (rosy) when you are in love, which matches the lyrics of IZ*ONE’s song ‘La Vie en Rose’.
In the song, IZ*ONE depicts a girl who is falling in love and mentions seeing the world in red, heart racing and includes a lot of metaphors of red such as roses and rubies!
A famous romantic song with the same title, ‘La Vie en Rose’ is the signature song of french singer Edith Piaf in the 1940s also depicts a similar meaning, seeing live through a rosy pair of glasses, in a sense of utmost joy and state of bliss.
Here’s two versions of Edith Piaf’s ‘La Vie en Rose’, one sung by herself and the other being sung by Andrea Pocelli :
