Jelly Step One: Smash the block colour
look like Jen, who works floaty red dress
and an electric blue cardi, teamed with her
classic jet black Nikita jelly shoes.

Jen

Jelly Step Two: Or you could go for
a lighter look, like Keshia! Teaming
paille sandals with a floral blazer and
chic pinstripe jeans! We love it!

Keshia

Jelly Step Three: Or maybe a tropical
bomber jacket with matching shorts
is more your style? We’re loving Victoria’s
blue colour combo and exotic prints with

our sea-green Méduse.

Jelly Step Four: What’s hot this season?
The vintage-bohemian festival look is
the trend to rock this summer and Joey
shows you how you can work it with

some jelly shoes! Suede tan? PARFAIT!

Joey

Jelly Step Five: Vivid prints and crazy colours
is always a style statement that works its magic!
How about rocking a mini dress with reds and
yellows with our SUN Méduse, like Ashlee?
Primary colours that are a match made in heaven!

Méduse Talks With… Samantha – Let’s travel around the world!

24 Jun , 2015  

Meduse featured image - Samantha

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

‘I would definitely take your Méduse Jumpy boots travelling anywhere’

A fashion blogger, curious spirit and globe trekker – Samantha has it all! Coming from all the way down under (Australia), this cool cat came to our attention when we spotted her original sense of style. Not only is she up for the #MeduseColor challenge, she’s also game for our interview! Check it out…  

M – So jelly lover, how would you introduce yourself in a few words?
S – My name is Samantha and I run my own Fashion/Travel Blog called Rapunzille. I’m Australian but I am always seeking my next adventure!
I use fashion as a way to express who I am and how I feel. I love to travel often to continuously throw myself into new situations. I find that it helps me grow as a person – especially my last trip to Canada for nearly 7 months!
I’m a Graphic Designer, so I’m infatuated with prints and colours! Which drew me to Méduse’s amazing collection of shoes! I associate colour with being happy and also the summertime! My two favourite things!

M – So we had a sneaky look at your blog (it’s too good!), and saw that you like to visit our beloved Paris! What makes you love the place so much? Is it the French culture? Fashion? Food? Or something else?
S – Oh my goodness! Paris is divine! The architecture makes me feel as though I’ve stepped into a fairytale. The fact that so many influential fashion designers are based in Paris makes me infatuated with the city! However, the food, the language and the lifestyle is far different than to what I’m used to! This excites me and makes me want to keep visiting Paris, and also explore the rest of France! At one point last year I was learning French, and I had so much fun doing it, but life got in the way. I do need to start practising again soon!

Meduse - Samantha2

M – Your snapshots are shot in beautiful settings, such as Canada! If you were to have a photoshoot in our Jumpy boots (our take on the Chelsea boots), where would you go?
S – Thanks! Canada was beautiful ! I’ve done sooooo much travelling (more countries to be added to the blog soon) that I’m finally back in Australia and appreciate the amazing natural wonders that I have in my own country! I would definitely take your Méduse Jumpy boots travelling anywhere, they are so versatile and really jazz up the average fashion boot! I would climb rocks on the beautiful sandy Australian beaches with my Jumpy boots and go on adventures in the Blue Mountains etc! I would also definitely pack them for my next trip to Europe!

M – And finally! You’ve just submitted a superb photo for #MeduseColor contest – well done! What was the inspiration behind your outfit? Do you like to mix and match colour?
S – Thank you ! The inspiration behind it actually was that I got that dress in a little shop in Nice, France. I thought it would be perfect to enter a dress I bought in France for the competition! The patterns remind me of the detail on the architecture in Europe! The patterns on the dress, mixed with the red colour and brown and white bag, create a casual summer look that mixes up colours in a fun vibrant way !

Your jelly lesson, from us to you.

Jelly Step One: When you think blue.
You think denims! Amélie shows
off some summery acid blue dungarees
teamed with some girly pink Salsada
pumps! You can’t go wrong!

Amelie

Jelly Step Two: If you want
to wear a blue and pink look that is
set to turn heads – look no further! Emma
works the electric blue tone with shocking

pink for her #MeduseColor magic. Simply
FAB.

Jelly Step Three: Showing off
a #MeduseColor style that is not only rich
in blues and pinks
– it’s so very chic! Fluffing up with
a pink jacket and some simple blue denim jeans,
Sabrina shows 
how to contrast colours with
a
touch of luxury!

Jelly Step Four: Not only do we have
a punch of denim – we have a wave of
double denim in Julie’s look! She’s
teamed it with her salmon-pink Méduse –
it’s city – chic with a hint of the 
exotic!

Nikita-6-720x730

Jelly Step Five: And finally – Denim will never
die and Joy shows that! Mixing a dusty pink shirt,
with some cool 
denim shorts, finished with our

bright coral SUNLIGHT, it’s a look that
stands out from the crowd!

Joy

Blue and pink – two colours that are so vivid whatever the shade. It seems like these two pop-tastic colours are shades that work together so well – so whether you pair a soft salmon shade with a baby blue, or shocking pinks with electric blues, this is a match made in heaven.

Many thanks to our bloggers who showed off their creations for #MeduseColor! And now we turn to you, the reader! Enter our competition by showing off how you mix and match colour in your outfit! Just tag @meduseoriginal and use the hashtag #MeduseColor on Instagram, and you could be the winner of 3 pairs of our jellyshoes!

Méduse Talks With Grace – A creative mind in the sky…

17 Jun , 2015  

Untitled design (1)

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

“I am a tiny Irish girl who does her very best to be a tiny bit French.”

Coming from all the way in Ireland, Grace is now a nurse based in London and boy, has she got that ‘London street style’ with a hint of Frenchness. (Just check out her London rooftop shoot in Méduse!) The mash up of owning the best of these two looks, is what keeps her ticking, and her snapshots speak for themself. With bundles of energy and unlimited creativity, Grace is a wise one!

M: So! Who are you jelly lover?
G: Hi! I’m Gracie I am a tiny Irish girl who does her very best to be a tiny bit French.

M: Tell us a bit more about your photoshoot in Méduses! What were the ideas behind the shots?
G: So we thought about the brand and the history of the shoe. I wanted to keep it simple and chic but also very true to my personal style! I teamed the meduse with a classic Breton strip top and navy silk shorts, basically what I live in during the (cold) British summer!

 

Meduse interview - Grace2

M: We’re in love with your Instagram – it shows such character from your personal life, to the idols you love. How does your Instagram reflect who you are and your loves in life?
G: I take my job extremely seriously however I really need to detach from it. I decided to use my Instagram as a medium to meet other creative minds. I’m honest and open and I think that comes across on my page.

M: As you’re a fashion expert, can you tell us what to wear with Méduse? 😉
G: Everything ! I will be wearing them for my surf holiday in Biarritz in July and as it cools down I will be wearing them with knee socks and an LBD around Shoreditch !

M: And one last thing! What 4 blogs do you recommend keeping an eye on?
G: Oh my god only 4 ?! Ok my really good friend Jess (we both worked as waitresses when I first moved to London) : @ihavethisthingfor .
I also love @eastlondonkiddo who takes beautiful photographs!
I adore this Irish beauty @thebubblecollective
This last girl has incredible style and is also Irish: @eimearvarianbarry

We told you so! Grace is a gal who’s tip-top on Instagram and she certainly knows a thing or two about what stars to keep an eye on! Sending you a huge jelly high-five Grace, we hope you loved standing on top of London’s skyline in our Méduse! Keep up to date with her musings and snapshots here.

Méduse Talks… With Coralie

10 Jun , 2015  

Coralie featured image

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

“My mum is very classy, she is a real French ‘Maman'”

She knows how to strike a pose and pull a funny face at the same time! Our prized winner of #MamanMeduse contest, Coralie, invites us into her and her ‘mamans’ wonderfully crazy world!

M: Woohoo! First we’d like to say congrats on being the winner of #MamanMeduse! Tell us, what was the inspiration behind the photo with you and your ‘maman’?
C – Well our family is a bit crazy and wild, but we like to stay happy no matter what! So, through this photo I hoped to make people smile but also to show off how we bounce off each other!  

M: You and your ‘maman’ can now rock the ‘team jellies’ look! How will you and your ‘maman’ be planning to wear your Méduse together? Send us a picture!
Voilà

Coralie1

 

M: You are well and truly French, so can you describe how your ‘maman’ shows off her French traits? Is it her chic style, or something else?
C – Regarding her French traits, my mum is very classy – she is a real French ‘maman’. Why? Because she doesn’t care about what people think and she lives for herself and her family… and nothing is more beautiful than that!

P.S: She’s super modern when it comes to fashion and she often asks me for advice!

M: Many daughters and their ‘mamans’ like to hang out, whether it’d be for a shopping trip, or watching a chick-flick with a tub of Ben & Jerry’s! What do you two like to get up to, when you’re together?
C – We have so many mother/daughter rituals! The kiss and hug before going to bed. We help each other, we motivate each other and we love to bake in the evenings as well! And when it comes to shopping? Well that’s unavoidable haha!

Ooh! You and your ‘maman’ sure do put a smile on our face. Keep up the spirit! You fully deserved to be the winners of #MamanMeduse and we hope you both share your style tips with Méduse! Stay tuned to Coralie’s Instagram here!

What about you? What fun things do you and your ‘maman’ get up to? Comment here!

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

“I always loved wearing Méduses because we you can do anything with these shoes!”

She stands loud and proud from our beloved city of Nantes, and she snaps her Méduse footsteps with her adorable little dog – and y’know what? He’s jelly! In this interview, we walk through her favourite highlights of Nantes and her love for Méduse!

M: So tell us! Who are you, jelly lover?
E: So, who am I? I was born and bred in Nantes and I have lived there for 19 years, up until now, as I’m studying Art in Rennes’ University of Human Science. (Rennes 2.) So, I can’t say I am 100% “nantaise” anymore!

M: Challenge : Well,  we would love to see a picture of you dress up with the perfect outfit to wear with your black jellies!
Voilà !

Meduse - Elsa1

M: It’s pretty cool how we’re both from the Nantes region! Where do you like exploring in Nantes? And where would be the best place to hang out in your jellies?
E: In Nantes, the best places to hang out with my jellies are Trentemoult (even though it’s not really in Nantes) and the island of Nantes and the city centre of course! In fact, as soon as the sun is out, I go everywhere with my jet black jellies! They suit all kinds of places!

M: Your jet black jellies (we love them 😉 ) – how do you like to style them up?
E: I always loved wearing Méduses because we you can do anything with these shoes! You can dip in the water, stroll on the sand, walk in the countryside, garden, in the city – you can even wear them to a party!

 

Now you guys now know exactly where to go and walk in your Méduses in Nantes! Thanks Elsa for all your tips and tricks! We’ll definitely be following your footsteps! You too can follow Elsa on her Instagram to see the snapshots of her life!

And what about you? In which part of your city would you take your Méduse with you? Leave your comment below!
