At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share the same values as us – bold, colourful and original. Each week, we talk to a rising star about their art, talent, predictions and how Méduse features in their life. Another week, another star…
We know it. You know it. Just like a tiger in a wild savannah – animal print lives in our wardrobes.
To paraphrase Baudelaire, modernism is this fleeting half of the art whose second part is eternal. Eternal, just like the spots and the stripes of the animal kingdom. We at Méduse have re-invented these exotic prints with our zebra Jumpy, leopard print Jumpy and leopard print tall boot Flamac. (see below). It’s modern. It’s mode. It’s Méduse.
We wanted to know how this trend is perceived by others. And by others, we asked none other than fashion blogger Artlex who gives her view on this timeless trend.
Méduse: How your outfit influence your state of mind? Does it have an impact on your mood, or does your mood have an impact on your outfit?
Artlex: My outfit, my make-up and even my hairdressing reflect my mood. If I’m happy, motivated by a project, or if it’s sunny (and not only outside, in my heart too!), I want it to shine through! I treat my hair, refine my make-up and take a lot of pleasure in choosing my clothes. On the other hand, if I get up on the wrong side of the bed, tired and grumpy, I put on the first thing that I see, lol! I just wrap a duvet around my head, dust on a bit of powder for my make-up and that’s enough for my day!
M: Do your Jumpy boots with a Zebra or Leopard print make you feel a bit wilder and ready for action?
A: Ha ha! Wilder, maybe not, but more original, that’s for sure. The little leopard touch makes all the difference among my numerous pairs of shoes. 😉 The big advantage, since I have my Jumpy is that when it rains, it’s almost a pleasure to go out in the rain!
How cool is this cat? Or should we say, how cool is this jelly-loving cat?! WE’RE IN LOVE! Thank you so much Artlex! Keep up to date with Artlex’s world on her blog, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & Pinterest !
And you, our Méduse friends, what’s your take on animal print? On a scale of 1 (not your taste) to 10 (absolutely awesome!) how much do you love it? Let us know in the comments!
