Frenchness come to life! This tune by Paradis
usually helps 😉

for girly-chic stripes and polka-dots.

Méduse Talks With… Yuliya of Yuliya Modeuse

29 Apr , 2015  

Meduse - Yulyia Featured picture

At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…

“The trendiest accessory? … your gorgeous SUN Méduse.”

We’re talking straight up Frenchness this week. And who better to share savvy thoughts on ‘the French touch’ than the Mademoiselle herself –  fashion blogger, Yuliya!

M: On your blog, you like to play with monochrome and geometric shapes. What’s the inspiration behind it?
Y: My inspiration mainly comes from Pinterest and Instagram.

M: CHALLENGE! Can you create the perfect outfit which encompasses French style + Panther Jumpy. Go!
Y: Et voilà !

Meduse - Interview Yuliya copy

M: Your style is a true French original – matching a sunny yellow coat, a red bag and of course your Panthere Jumpy! How will you be dressing this spring?
Y: The trendiest accessory? A lovely “vintage French fashion” scarf I found at Emmaus. Or your lovely SUN Méduse haha!

M: How do you like to wear your Panther Jumpy?
Y: Ooh! A  tricky question. Despite the fact they have a panther print, they can easily be worn with many outfits – a cute black dress (classic), a ripped pair of denim jeans or petite leather shorts. Anyway, it became an essential accessory in my wardrobe – firstly because they are so hot and secondly because I live in a rainy part of France!

M: A quirky question! If you were to describe your style in one word, what would you say?
Y: Simple!

An expert at Get Jumpy and French fashion savvy, Yuliya is the girl who knows it all!  Stay tuned to her thoughts and snapshots on her blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

And what about you? How would you highlight your Frenchness? Tell us in the comments!

Méduse Talks With… Boutique, Quattro Rish!

21 Apr , 2015  

0422 feature image quattrorish

At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…

Spotting our fellow Jumpy lovers from the UK, Quattro Rish, a buzzing boutique, share their tips and trends for spring / summer 15! They have an eye for simple, elegant fashion and they certainly keep our minds ticking with their fresh fashion predictions. Here we go!

You are 4 friends who launched your fashion boutique in the UK. How would you describe your current collections?

Yes we were four friends to begin with but now we are a husband and wife team as the other couple decided to move back to sunny Sicily just after shop was opened ! We have a wonderful team at QR who all help with styling and buying along with our very own blogger! As a rule of thought I sell what I love and what I would wear keeping it simple, understated and elegant with pieces which reflect my style. Our current collections are mostly Scandinavian brands such as Baum und Pferdgarden, Custommade and Twist & Tango which offer edgy, simple and understated designs. We also love casual French pieces like your fab wellies and American Vintage, and the fresh and clean English pieces from MiH Jeans.

Meduse - Quattrorish1

 

We love how there’s a touch of Frenchness with your style and photography! What accessories would you wear, to show off a nouveau French style for this season?

Ah , thank you, that’s a great compliment! The must have accessories would be a pair of round shaped sunnies with a fringe bag.  Both instantly update any outfit for some serious street style.

Meduse - Quattrorish2

 

If you could live life in one colour, what would it be and why?

It has to be blue, from navy to dark to light blue ! There is nothing more chic and elegant than a slightly loose blue masculine shirt in good cotton worn by women!  You just need to add heels or Jumpy wellies, et voilà !

Here’s a tricky question – if you had to choose, what is your favourite Jumpy boot and why?

Hmmm, I love them all but it would have to be the classic black with zebra print on the side. They are just super cool and stylish. They can be worn very smart or casual, I just love the design mix of the Chelsea boots / wellington boot / discreet animal print !

And now for a challenge! We know you love our Jumpy boots, so we challenge you to showcase and encapsulate these two things in one photo: Méduse + spring. Are you up for the challenge?

We love a challenge ! Challenge : Sun, fresh green, sky blue, denim shorts and Jumpy in Salmon / Pink !

Meduse - Quattrorish3

 

You said it! We think we’ll take you up on that Spring image 😉 sun, blue skies, cool denims and our beloved Jumpy boots! Thank you very much for speaking with us Quattro Rish, we really look forward to seeing your summer surprises in Méduse!

Explore their website here and stay tuned for their fashion finds of the day, on their Instagram here!

Au revoir for now!

Méduse Talks With… Méduse !!!

17 Apr , 2015  

2

At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…

Come on! You have to admit it. The new Méduse collection for Spring / Summer 15 is pretty damn awesome ;-). We’re forever twirling in our sparkling Nikita and we dance and prance on the rooftops of Paris in our new colours of the season.

But our inspiration stems from the heroic geniuses backstage, and we decided to chat to the clever clogs about the spirit and thought process behind our current season!

Meduse - New Rainbow

 

Our new collection is filled with colours that enhance the styles at Méduse. What would be THE word to describe this collection?

CANDY : because of the pastel mix that makes us think of sugar almonds and candy! And most of all, the nostalgic “back to childhood” spirit of our SUN jellies!

The new SUNLIGHT are a sparkling inspiration 😉 ! Where would be the best spots to wear them ?

Ibiza at sunset to party all night long! And for the kiddos : perfect to play ghosts in the dark :-)

Meduse - Glow in the dark

 

The new Saumon and Vert d’eau colors are a perfect match with the pastel trend. Why did you pick these colours ?

We needed some sweet tastes for the summer. Pastel are soft and feminine colours, which introduce the Spring season, the softness of the morning dew and the pleasure of sweet moments.

The new magazine for the new collection in collaboration with Les Paulettes is featured with pictures on the rooftops of Paris. What is the inspiration behind these pictures ?

The rooftops of Paris are synonymous with escapism and city adventure! This is the place where you chill with a few drinks with your friends or have a romantic time with your lover. It is a way to escape from the bustling city when in reality you can’t. But this is what Méduse is about – a walking holiday in the city!

 

Meduse - SS15 catalogue

Et voila! Words of wisdom from our backstage team!

A huge THANKS to the designers of Méduse, for sharing their words and spirit with us! Keep it up! <3

And we party together! We’re a family. Whether we’re a SUN jelly, or a JUTAM, we all hang out together in the seasons that pass us by. We are all Méduse.

Joy Blog Set Featured Image

At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…

When you search hard for something, and you find that piece of gold, it’s magic. So when we found creative busy-bee DearJoy. we were over the moon that we managed to have a chit-chat with her! What a result!

 

me2

What feature of your personality defines you as an original person?

I am a non conformist person. I am not a part of Panurge – if I do, I’m not in my zone and I’m not myself.

If you’re on the hunt for an outfit for a summer’s day, what things would you be looking for?

For summer, I would look for a new pair of sunglasses. Mine are not adapted to my eyesight anymore haha! In general, I like to go for dark brown sunglasses, never black.

bim

 

What superpower, do you wish you had?

I would say, the power to snap my fingers and get what I want.


Dearjoy - Meduse

 

What was the last thing, that made you laugh?

THIS VIDEO! HAHA!

 

CHALLENGE! We’re in love with your Pinterest, so we challenge you to create one moodboard of six images… about what Meduse evokes to you!

Et voilà!

Méduse Diary – The Ultimate Méduse Fashion Hunt

9 Apr , 2015  

150409_Facebook_diary_styleboard_Easter Hunt by Meduse

Each week we cover a theme that is close to our jelly-hearts. We love to dig deep and write our thoughts on trends, fiction and culture in our diary here! 

Now we know you’ve been keeping busy with hunting eggs, but now we’re doing our own little hunt, where you can come along too!

Our hunt doesn’t consist of chocolate eggs – oh no, we’ve already moved on from that – instead we’re on the look for some other bits and bobs after Easter, things that are as close to our hearts as chocolate – clothes, music, accessories – you get the gist.

And as we’re well versed in prowling for the latest fashion pieces, let us put on the pair of Méduse that will get us roaring and ready for our hunt. Of course it’s our leopard print Jumpy boots. RIGHT! Now that they’re on – let’s go!

jumpard__023849800_1303_18112014

 

We’re on the look for something that shouts Easter fashion! And there’s nothing more fitting than this awesome T-Shirt from Petit Bateau, designed by fashion best bunny, Fifi Lapin! IT’S SO CUTE!

Screenshot (35)

 

We’re not gonna lie to you, we’re guilty of feeling hungry all the time. As soon as the fridge door shuts… it opens again (woops…) so we’ve found the perfect little lunch bag, to stock away our pots of jelly and carrots (come join us Fifi Lapin!) Check out this wild Safari Park lunch bag from Paperchase!

 

And you know us by now – we search high and low, for the best upcoming talents around the world. And we found something very special, from our homeland of France (quelle surprise)! Electro-musician Sayacet aka Pierre Lefeuvre is a man who we can’t stop listening to. His latest song ‘Mirages’ is an overload of  ear candy (it’s Easter after all). Think M83 with a twist!

 

We’ve found all the things we’ve been looking for, and well, we’re very happy! *smiles smugly*

We hope you enjoyed the hunt!

Méduse Talks… With Marie, of Synonym of Happiness

8 Apr , 2015  

150408_Facebook_itvMarie_Easter Hunt by Meduse

At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…

We search high. We search low. We’re always on the hunt to pick out the cool, quirky talents from around the world, and today we’re talking to a girl who lives all over the world! That’s right, she’s lived in Paris, our hometown Nantes and now Krakow in Poland! Today’s chat is with globe-trotter Marie, of blog Synonym of Happiness. Here we go!

So! Who are you jelly lover?

My name is Marie, I was born in Paris, but later moved to Nantes. I decided to leave France for Poland and I’ve been here for 4/5 years now! Krakow is an awesome place. You should come! My blog is about my travelling family of 3. I write about our adventures and travelling in general. I love to write! I actually told my husband yesterday “I write in English, speak in Polish, read in French and think with all languages! It confusing, ha!” But it describes me and my life well – I am a mix of everything.

Marie & Family Interview with Meduse

We know you love travelling all around the world! If you could take Méduse on an adventure, where you to take us?

The first answer would be… everywhere! But that’s not really helping, right? So here is my list: Mongolia, Japan, Laos, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Peru and Argentina!

Marie Travel Photos, Interview with Meduse

What are the few items that you need with you, when you’re on a journey?

Ahaha! Méduse? ;-)One time we were snorkelling in Egypt, when I saw a snake near my foot! Now, I always take my Méduse to the sea. Of course my luggage, a nice light backpack (it’s the best bag ever!) And my phone… a basic water, shock and dustproof phone.

Meduse in the sea with Marie

What’s the best surprise you discovered on your travels?
That I do not need a country to belong to. Wherever I go, that’s my home.

Marie Meduse Interview

We like to eat a lot of jelly during Easter (surprise, surprise!) What do you like to do during Easter?
Eat chocolate!! There is tartarska sauce in Poland, you eat it with eggs. I am totally crazy about this sauce!! Maybe we should go away for Easter? Praga, Czech Republic? 😉

 

CHALLENGE! We asked you earlier, where you would take Méduse on an adventure, so we’d like to see this come to life! What would Méduse look like in your chosen destination?

This year… my Méduse will be going to Croatia and Indonesia! And next year, we’ll be hitting Africa.
How will it look…? Well you’ll have to wait and see… 😉

Marie and her family, Meduse Interview

Ahhhhhhhhh… teasing, we hate teasing – we want to see your Méduse adventure now! But fine.. we’ll sit back and hold tight Marie ;-). Thank you very much for having a little chat with us, Marie! We know you’re busy globe trotting! You can check out Marie’s blog ‘Synonym of Happiness‘ and her Instagram here, to discover the sounds and sights from all over the world.

Au revoir for now!
