‘I see Méduse as an extension of French traditions and the evolution of an emblematic shoe’
Earlier this summer, we challenged you guys to get colour crazy for our competition #MeduseColor. Many of you entered and showed off your colour creations, but there were three stand-outs who made it to the top! Introducing one of our winners: Marion Clavière, a lifestyle blogger with a passion for fashion, books, socks and Méduse!
Méduse – Woohoo! You are now part of the Méduse family! So tell us a bit more about yourself – who are you, jelly lover?
Marion – I’m a 24 year old community manager and communication consultant, but I’m also a blogger who’s addicted to books and pretty socks!
Méduse – Méduse brings a lot of stories and memories from the past and present. What’s your story with Méduse?
Marion – Méduse is a story that’s stuck with my family; my grand-parents and parents don’t have the best memories but they were made to wear them if they went on holiday or if they went fishing! But to me it’s different. I see it as an extension of French traditions and the evolution of an emblematic shoe, made in France. Back in the day it was made to be worn when at the sea or by the lake, but now they are suitable for city life, going to work or even for wearing at parties!
Méduse – Sticking with the #MeduseColor theme, what’s your favourite colour? What does it represent to you?
Marion – I‘m definitely a person who loves classic things, so I’ll always opt for black or navy Méduses, but I must say, I fell for the straw-coloured Paille SUN during my holiday! They’re more colourful but they’re also cute and subtle – a perfect match for my classic look.
Méduse – Speaking of fashion, you won 3 very different pairs of Méduse shoes! How will you style each of them up? Where will you journey to in them? We’d love to see some pics!
Marion – I will be wearing my black SUN sandals everywhere this autumn, and I’ll be styling them with socks, tights, jeans or a skirt. I’ll either style them up with a complete black look for a fun touch, or in a preppy style with a skater skirt and a pretty blouse. But for work or meetings with clients, I’ll wear them with jeans and a blouse, for a smart / casual look.
My salmon JUMPY are so punchy! I picture wearing them for a casual rainy day ride or for a stylish Sunday morning at a market. They are absolutely perfect when worn with light colours, during summer rain.
My SALDANO are perfect to enjoy a good book sitting on the grass or by the shore of a lake!
Well Marion, you’re getting us ready for autumn – we’ll be rocking the socks and jellies look, don’t you worry! 😉 Many thanks for having a little chit-chat with us! We love your photos, and we know you’re gonna style up our Méduse just the way we like it – fun, French and original! Keep up to date with Marion’s blog Books & Socks here!
