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

“The trendiest accessory? … your gorgeous SUN Méduse.”

We’re talking straight up Frenchness this week. And who better to share savvy thoughts on ‘the French touch’ than the Mademoiselle herself –  fashion blogger, Yuliya!

M: On your blog, you like to play with monochrome and geometric shapes. What’s the inspiration behind it?
Y: My inspiration mainly comes from Pinterest and Instagram.

M: CHALLENGE! Can you create the perfect outfit which encompasses French style + Panther Jumpy. Go!
Y: Et voilà !

M: Your style is a true French original – matching a sunny yellow coat, a red bag and of course your Panthere Jumpy! How will you be dressing this spring?
Y: The trendiest accessory? A lovely “vintage French fashion” scarf I found at Emmaus. Or your lovely SUN Méduse haha!

M: How do you like to wear your Panther Jumpy?
Y: Ooh! A  tricky question. Despite the fact they have a panther print, they can easily be worn with many outfits – a cute black dress (classic), a ripped pair of denim jeans or petite leather shorts. Anyway, it became an essential accessory in my wardrobe – firstly because they are so hot and secondly because I live in a rainy part of France!

M: A quirky question! If you were to describe your style in one word, what would you say?
Y: Simple!

An expert at Get Jumpy and French fashion savvy, Yuliya is the girl who knows it all!  Stay tuned to her thoughts and snapshots on her blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

And what about you? How would you highlight your Frenchness? Tell us in the comments!

Méduse Talks… With Darishini Thiyagarajan

11 Mar , 2015  

Méduse jelly shoes by Darishini T.


At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Another week, another star…


She’s fierce. She’s fabulous. And man, she knows how to #GetJumpy! Holding her pose, like a stunt from The Matrix, blogger, writer and fashionista Darishini T. caught our eye, when we saw her incredible Get Jumpy entry! A true jelly lover and a new friend from way over in Singapore, we knew we had to highlight this talented star as a part of our ‘Méduse Map: Stars Around The Globe’ theme. So here we go!


Tell us about your Get Jumpy photo you entered! Where did you take the photo? What was your mood? Was there any music in your mind at that time? What were your ideas behind your pose?

Well a friend of mine loves taking jump shots, and he introduced me to the art of getting the perfect jump shot a few months back. The energy I feel when taking a jump shot is something I’ve never experienced before, and the adrenaline rush is what I love about it. I took the photo at my polytechnic campus here in Singapore, Temasek Polytechnic! (Our campus actually has pretty good spots for photo shoots) Before taking a shot, I usually compose myself – rid myself of any thoughts, so there was nothing in mind at that point of time! As for my pose, I usually try to go for something effortless. I look for inspiration on Instagram, but otherwise it’s mostly improvisations!

We notice that you’re incredibly creative, so here’s a challenge! Can you write a short poem about Méduse jelly shoes?  

It’s been a while since I cracked my head over a poem, so here’s a haiku for you!
how wonderful it
would be to dance about with
colours on your feet

As a student in journalism, you must look out for all things cultural. When we say ‘Frenchness’ what does that mean to you?

Definitely! I absolutely love places rich in culture! Hmm, I would say that ‘Frenchness’ means beauty and sophistication to me. France is a beautiful country, and so are the people – I really would love to come down someday!


We notice you wear your jelly shoes often. Imagine if one day you interview Anna Wintour, what jelly shoes would you wear to impress her and give you that extra confidence?

Well, the day I interview Anna Wintour would be the best day of my life! I would love to try something new, something different from the conventional jelly sandals I look to. Chelsea boots are to die for, and combining that with French elements is a brilliant idea. (That’s the Jumpy boot)



You’ve got a great taste in music, so we give you the power to be our guest DJ! Pick the 5 songs that have you toe-tapping!

Why thank you! My current favourite songs are all from very different genres HAHA!
Great taste in music – check! Knows how to Get Jumpy – check! A true jelly lover – check! Darishini, you tick all the boxes gal! If you’d like to keep up to date with her fashion, photography, writing and jelly journeys, then tune into her Instagram and her blog! They’re both ones to keep an eye on!
