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!
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!
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:
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!
