Smile! It’s Ingrid

29 Jul , 2015

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

‘I had a pair of jelly sandals when I was younger and they were the only shoes I would wear’

Méduse talks with… Smilingrid!

She’s a girl who rocks a Hollywood smile, but she comes from buzzing Boston! Ingrid aka ‘Smiling Ingrid’ is a bright and colourful blogger who aims to inspire and share her zest for life! Red lipstick, coffee and jelly shoes are her loves – to mention a few! Take it away Ingrid!

M – So Ingrid, we’ve been looking at your blog and you mention a number of things you love in life (we just mentioned a few above! 😉 ) How would you summarise it in a few lines?

I – I am a very happy person, which is why my blog name combines “smiling” and my name “Ingrid”. My longest-standing passions include language, reading, and (of course) fashion! The first passion led me to study French, the second to study literature and, combined with the third, begin my blog… which then led me to the ever-fashionable Meduse!

M – We’re curious to know – how did you discover Méduse? What do our jelly shoes evoke for you?

I – I discovered Meduse through your blogger collaborations! I had a pair of jelly sandals when I was younger and they were the only shoes I would wear – I even wore them as flower girl at my aunt’s wedding! That memory is the one evoked by your brand, of nostalgia and happiness… paired with lots of beautiful flowers!

M – CHALLENGE: On your blog, you show an unconditional love for fashion! So we must ask… what’s your favourite pair of Méduse? With this, we challenge you to create the perfect outfit with these shoes and show it in a styleboard! Feel free to match it with a varnish, a lipstick… we know you have a taste for those things! 😉

I – Oh my gosh, such a hard choice! I love the Nikita for a night out and the Camino for rainy days… but I think my favorite pair of Méduses would have to be the Sun in gold glitter, because they are the grown up, more chic version of the jellies I had as a child! These are fun!

Méduse for Fall

M – You’re a jet setter, always travelling around the world! Where are you going next? And which pair of Méduse would you pack in your suitcase?

I – I’m heading to Cancun at the end of the month! I would definitely pack a pair of the Méduses Sunlight in Corail to bring with me – they’d be the perfect color against the sea and sand, plus it would be so cool to see them glow at night!

We know it, you know it, Ingrid knows it! She’s got that Méduse vibe that runs in our colourful world and we love it! Her zest for life makes us want to put on our glowing Méduse and skip towards the sun! What a gal! Thank you so much for joining us Ingrid! We love your enthusiasm, and your blog keeps us buzzing! Keep up to date with her snapshots and thoughts on her blog Smiling Ingrid here!

 A bientôt !

Kawaii style & jelly shoes

Your style from us, to you.

Jelly Step One: Sprinkle your style with this
sweet chocolate doughnut handbag from
Cutesy Kink, and team it with our BonBon
SUN Méduse. Can this look be anymore
candylicious? NOPE!

Jelly Step Two: Kawaii style is all about
being way ahead of everyone else, and not
being afraid to show off your daring and original
flair! So we think these unique, magical leggings
from Roxie Sweetheart, paired with our French
original vert d’eau SUN Méduse, is a fairytale
come true!

Jelly Step Three: We’re all about colour
and we ain’t afraid to paint our rainbow.
How could we not resist this Rubix Cube bag
from Cute Japanese Fashion
, with our sparkly

silver JAVANA?! *droooooool*

Jelly Step Four: Dive into this underwater
style with this fish crop top from Kawaii
London.
The ‘Méduse’ are the jellyfish to

complete your look! We would team this
top with our jelly JUTAM in paille!

Jelly Step Five: We know it’s not just us, when the
rest of the west just can’t get enough of Kawaii
fashion. This bad-ass trend has inspired Laura
Coleman’s ‘Kawaii Eyes’ scarf at Wolf & Badger
.

Work this scarf with our NIKITA in Saumon and
all eyes will be on you!

We like to think that Kawaii style matches the way we think – it’s bold, colourful, daring, original and a definite trend-setter! So how about fusing the east with the west by trying out one of our styles this summer? Which look has dazzled you? (we can’t choose!)

Méduse in Taiwan

22 Jul , 2015  

XWYSIBLINGS

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

Méduse talks with… Wendy!

“As soon as we wear Méduse, we totally fall in love with them. They are soft, they are beautiful, and they are French original.”

Meet Wendy – the hip-happening Méduse hero of Taiwan! She displays our jelly-tastic shoes in her boutique for the world to see and she loves to fuse French original fashion with traditional Taiwanese styles. Take a look at our very special interview here!

M – So! You guys know how to show off your Méduses with a Taiwanese edge – something we LOVE! Tell us a bit more about the love story between Méduse and people in Taiwan? What is it about our unique shoes that people like? Is it the style? Texture? Or something else?

W – We love jelly shoes because of the weather in Taiwan – summer is extremely hot and winter is very wet. In particular, Taiwan is an island surrounded by the sea, therefore, people really love to enjoy sunshine on the beach in the summer. But we couldn’t really find stylish jelly shoes in the market. But, in 2015, we found Méduse! Our first impression of Méduse is that it has an elegant design for both sandals and boots. As soon as we wear Méduse, we totally fall in love with them. They are soft, they are beautiful, and they are French original. Now, we can wear our Méduse shoes and walk by the seaside with our family, our friends, and our kids. How romantic it is!

M – Wearing Méduse… is something very French! As you are Méduse experts in Taiwan, can you tell us about French fashion styles in Taiwan? Is there a fashion fusion of French and Taiwanese styles? What does it look like?

W – For us, French fashion styles are elegant, chic, romantic, and simple. Taiwanese like to mix styles from different cultures, such as the Japanese and Korean ones. But compared to Japanese or Korean girls, Taiwanese girls prefer more casual yet elegant styles. So mixing the French style into the Taiwanese one, gives a very casual but stylish look.

M – Summer is here and all we’ve been doing is prancing around in our SUN sandals! We know you love these Méduses just as much as us, so can you give us some tips on how to style them up this summer?

W – The summer has started much earlier in Taiwan! Our tips to wear the SUN jelly shoes are:

Tip 1 – choose the most comfortable T-shirt from your wardrobe

Tip 2 – select the softest TUTU skirt or cool denim jeans

Tip 3 – put on your SUN jellies and wear a straw hat.

And there you have your SUN jelly style. 😉

M – And finally, we’ve set you and your sister a challenge! It’s called the ‘Méduse Surprise!’ We would like each of you to pick a pair of Méduse and a matching traditional Taiwanese outfit for the other person! Surprise each other with your chosen outfit and Méduses, take some photos and share your Taiwanese / French style with us!

W – It really is a challenge for us! We found two traditional clothes from our grandmother and our mother, who are 84 years old and 58 years old respectively, to mix and match the Méduse shoes – and that was interesting!

The first style – which my sister chose for me, is from my grandmother. The coat, called Miao-ao, is traditional hand-made and the fabric is more than 30 years old. I think it matches very well with the Jumpy boots!

W – The second style is the one I chose for my sister. The dress, called Qi-pao, is my mum’s favourite. We are surprised to see that it is a good match with the NIKITA jelly shoes!

My, oh my. Vintage Taiwanese fashion with our modern Méduse is a look that will be staying in our minds! Who thought this could be a thing! We’d like to say a huge thank you to Wendy who joined us for this very special interview! We love your spark and enthusiasm for our Méduse! It’s stars like you who put a smile on our face! Keep it up! Find more about her store here!

A bientôt !

Méduse lover Amalia!

15 Jul , 2015  

set feature image blogger2

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

“We used to wear the Méduse shoes when we were young… and we still wear them today!”

You guys know it – it puts a great big smile on our face when we hear from jelly lovers around the world. And now? We couldn’t be more chuffed with this little star who popped along for a sweet chat. Let us introduce Amalia – the hero, the creator behind the Facebook group #LoveMyMeduses. Make way!
amalia photo contest

 

M – Tell us: how did you come up with the idea of creating a group for Méduse-lovers?

A – I am in charge of a boutique shop for the #TEXTO brand, and we currently sell Méduse jelly shoes. My of-the-wall personality and a shred of nostalgia made me get back to the Méduse basics, in a modern and feminine way! For the story, I created the #LoveMyMeduses fan club right after a hen party with my friends. I brought a pair of jelly shoes with me in my suitcase for this special occasion. All the girls literally fell in love with my Méduse outfits. A few days later, the bride-to-be posted a message on my Facebook wall, telling me she had bought the same shoes, then a second girl did the same, then a third… After that, I simply commented “what if we create a fan club?”. #LoveMyMeduses was born.

M – How would you best describe the group?

A – #LoveMyMeduses is made for all the nostalgic people willing to take a leap back to their childhood – which really feels good from time to time ;-). We used to wear the Méduse shoes when we were young… and we still wear them today!  Growing up with my Méduse shoes, and wearing them again this summer, makes me super happy. Of course, you guys are all welcome to the facebook group!

 

amalia lovemymeduses

 

M – What are your best memories with Méduse?

A – I have some good memories with #Meduse. My first go back to my childhood, at our country house, during the summer holidays. We used to go to the nearby river, which we intimately called the “La Vanne à patauger nos petons” (the pond). I was with my grandmother and sister, and we were splashing around in the water with our hats and Méduse shoes on, to protect ourselves from the sun and the rocks. I remember eating our favorite LU cookies – the two biscuits with a delicious layer of chocolate in the middle. To be honest – these holidays were my sweetest childhood memories – simple, comforting…

M – Challenge! You know that we love fashion 😉 ! What is the best Méduse outfit to match with  your style?

A – Here’s a picture of me… 25 years later, on the same riverside, wearing my Méduse shoes:

 

amalia style NEW

 

A – I hope I managed to meet your expectations! Thank you #Meduse for being present in our lives. I am excited to see your next collection. You’ve definitely got a fan !! 😉

M – You Amalia, is what we call a stylish, super, SUPERFAN. Thank you very much for speaking to us and sharing your stories from the past to present. We hope you have many more moments with your Méduses in the future!

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

‘ On Instagram (…) it is essential to share the things you like! ‘

This globe-trotting fashion hero joins us in this week’s interview! She’s got a zest for life, and she sure knows how to rock the world of Instagram. Have your pen and paper at the ready cause this gal reveals her tips on how to be a leader on social media, and how to be a summer-savvy fashionista!

amelie face
A – Can you introduce yourself in a few words?

A – My name is Amélie and I am 22 years old. I grew up in France-Comté, a French region near Switzerland. Cancoillotte and Montbéliard sausage – does it sound familiar? 😉 I moved to Paris one year ago with my boyfriend, to complete my sport licence degree – I just graduated recently ! I am passionate about fashion, photography, cooking, travel and all the beautiful things in life!

M – On your Instagram we see a stylist, a cook, a photographer… so much energy ! What’s your secret?

Amelie a le style !

amelie cuisine

Amelie prend des photos !

A – I’d say passion. I’ve been very passionate about photography for a long time now! I never leave home without my reflex camera or my smartphone, and I really enjoy sharing all the nice things I do or see everyday with my followers, my family and my friends. It all looks like travel, but it’s just my everyday life!
M – We also had a look at your blog, and there is no doubt at Méduse… we LOVE your style! According to you, what’s the best outfit to wear this summer?
A – Thanks a lot, that’s very touching! I’d say my ideal summer outfit would be a plain white dress, light, with a pair of flat sandals, sunglasses, a beige panama hat and a little fringe handbag. Something nice and simple for a chilled walk along the beach.
M – Challenge! Can you make up THE summer outfit with our sea-green Nikita jelly shoes?
A – Challenge accepted!amelie styleboard
M – You’ve posted more than 1,000 pictures and you’re followed by 6,000 followers on Instagram… To all the fashion bloggers – what’s your tip to rule on social media?
A – I’ve never thought about this before, but I guess what’s important is to be sincere with your followers. Showing who you really are. Sure it feels good to post beautiful, aesthetic photos, but above all, I think they should reflect yourself – this is pretty essential. The objective is to share the things you like!
Finally, you must be present. Have real interactions with your followers.
Thanks to Instagram, I’ve met beautiful characters, and when you have the chance to switch from the web to reality, it’s amazing. I hope you’ll meet great people too!
M – Last question! This summer, are you more: sunbather, globetrotter or nightclubber?
A – This summer, I’ll definitely be a globetrotter! I am planning a trip to the land of elks and maple syrup! My boyfriend and I will travel to Montréal for the whole month of August. We’re thinking about moving over there!

Well Amélie – we’re so JELLY that you’re jetting off to Canada, we wish we could come with you in your suitcase! Thanks so much for sharing your wise words with us! We sure will take on those tips to be a star on Instagram! 😉 Keep up to date with Amélie’s musings and moments on her Instagram and blog – she’s one to not miss out on!

Méduse Talks With… Camille

1 Jul , 2015  

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

‘The best outfit to wear your jellies is the one when you feel like you’re on holiday.’

Whether she’s illustrating away or musing around town – you’ll always see the cool cat, Camille bopping around in her candy pink Méduse. We caught up with this bright artist who shares the secrets behind her talent! Make way!
M – We really like your illustrations and we notice you have an array of styles within your drawings. How would you describe your style?
C – Firstly, thank you for your interest in my illustrations! Indeed, I use different styles in my drawings. Usually, I make cartoon-style illustrations, with simple expressions and vivid colours – it’s a style which is spontaneous and fun! But I also like to create illustrations which are more realistic and perfectionist. It all depends on the subject. Sometimes, it’s important to come back to something more classical to improve the techniques, the perspectives and the proportions. Having different styles helps to keep an objective perception of my own style. I also like to adapt the illustrations depending on what they represent.
M – Do you have particular source of inspiration? Do some things inspire you more than others?
C – I mainly get inspiration from my daily life, my experiences and my moods. For a long time, I was writing a blog where I would try to bond my illustrations with some funny experiences which were happening to me, even though it was not always very exciting! Now, I start with short stories I get from writers. Or I draw what I observe and what strikes me.


M – We spotted a sneaky snippet of our Méduse in one of your photos on Facebook! What is your perfect outfit to wear with your Méduses?
C – Yes, I have a pair of SUN Bonbon sandals. I love to wear them all the time: at the beach, in the city, on my balcony, when shopping… The perfect outfit to wear with my jellies is the one that makes me feel like I’m on holiday. I often wear rough blue denim jeans, which are rolled up above the ankles – as if I was going fishing!
M – Here is a challenge for you! Could you create an illustration with a pair of Méduse? It can be anything you want, let your imagination run free!
C – Challenge accepted!


M – Finally, let’s take a step back to childhood. Could you tell us one of your memories with with Méduse?
C – The Méduses saved me from weevers in the water, many times when when I was a child. Luckily, my Méduses avoided me from getting bitten so I could fully enjoy swimming. Not only are they pretty shoes but they also insure your safety! Méduse is also necessary for pebble beaches !!

Yep! She said it. Wear Méduse and you’ll be THE ultimate summer girl. High five to Camille for joining us here, we’re super happy to have her featured on our blog! Find all her illustrations on her portfolio and her Facebook page!
