Méduse talks with… L’Autruche

9 Sep , 2015  

L'AUTRUCHE blogger from Nantes


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

Nantes is a super melting-pot of all styles. No one looks alike, that’s awesome!

Last week, you met Nolwenn Crème, one of our two models from the new collection.
This week, Méduse talks with… L’Autruche!

L'autruche

The lovely L’Autruche chats to us about her history and happiness with Meduse. Our second Nantaise blogger to model the new Autumn/Winter 2015/16 collection, there’s so much more to L’Autruche than just her love for jelly shoes!

M – Tell us about your history with Méduse from your childhood to the new Autumn / Winter 15/16 collection photo shoot. We’d love to see some pictures!

L’A – You’re right, my first memories with Méduse come from my childhood, when I used to holiday by the sea with my parents. I was always fooling around on the rocks, so Méduses were necessary to avoid being hurt. Since then, I started wearing the boots and rain boots. In Nantes, it’s often rainy, so having some in my shoe closet is essential.

M – We’d like to hear a story about the photo shoot! What’s the best memory you’re keeping from this experience?

L’A – When the people in charge were wiping our shoes right before the photoshoot as it was raining so much! It was really fun to see them at our feet ahah 😉

M – Méduse is touring France for the “style à la française” with the new collection. Starting point? Nantes of course! According to you, what makes Nantes an emblematic city of the “style à la française? Any specific place in the city? A trend? A tradition? Or is it something else?

L’A – I was born there and I’m slightly chauvinistic so I might not be totally objective 😉 But I’d say that Nantes is a super melting-pot of all styles. No one looks alike, that’s awesome!  

L'Autruche place Graslin

M – According to you, what makes the new Méduse collection Autumn – Winter 15/16 original and why?
L’A – For its range! Any style, any taste, there’s plenty to make everyone happy. Living in Nantes, it’s perfect for us :)

M – What should be the next step of Méduse’s tour of France according to you? And why?
L’A – Hmmm, Beaupréau perhaps – because it’s where the Méduse shoes are made.

Yay, thank you L’Autruche! We love how much you love Meduse – we are all about happiness, dancing in the rain and lifelong celebrations of lots of jelly love, which you are too! A heavenly match! If you have as much love for L’Autruche as we do, don’t forget to check out our Nanataise star’s fabulous blog!

Méduse talks with… Nolwenn

2 Sep , 2015  

Nolwenn Crème à Nantes

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

“Every year, I was gifted with a new pair of Méduses,
and I would always go with the most glittery ones!”

Last week, you’ve met Marion. This week, Méduse talks with… Nolwenn!

Nantaise blog star Nolwenn Crème, one half of Meduse’s new Autumn/Winter 2015/16 Collection, takes some time to tell us more about what Nantes, family and jelly shoes mean to her…

M – Tell us about your history with Méduse, from your childhood to the new Autumn/Winter 2015-16 Collection photo shoot. We’d love to see some pictures!

N – I was so lucky to have grandparents taking me to Brittany at the Fouesnant forest every year in July! Over there, I would meet friends, ride my bike and go ‘fishing’ with my grandfather. We would look for winkles, cockles… and I wasn’t allowed to join without my Méduse! It was a matter of safety :) Thanks to that, every year, I was gifted with a new pair, and I would always go with the most glittery ones!

Nolwenn school is cool

M – We’d like to hear an anecdote about the photo shoot! What’s the best memory you’re keeping from this experience?

N – I loved this photo shoot even though the weather wasn’t so good! Rain, wind, cold temperatures… What was funny is when the rain would wet our Méduse! No big deal of course – thanks to the material, our feet were kept dry, but it still wasn’t aesthetically pleasing! So the Humeau Team would wipe our feet with a cloth between each photo! They were also holding our purses! Treatment for a princesss!!!
The best memory was the entire day, and the people I met. I was already friends with fellow blogger, L’Autruche. Now I know the Humeau brothers, the photographer Alain Moneger, the make-up artist Émilie Brunet… Such awesome and talented people!

Nolwenn Place Graslin

M – Méduse is touring France for the “style à la française” with the new collection. The starting point? Nantes of course! According to you, what makes Nantes an emblematic city of the “style à la française”? Any specific place in the city? A trend? A tradition? Or is it something else?

N – Nantes is an emblematic city of the “style à la française” for so many reasons! The city is charming: it has places like Graslin square, the Anne de Bretagne castle or the Pommeraye pathway; for its gastronomy as there are a lot of chefs in the region; for it’s Brittany influence and the mildly salted butter, for its Loire wines, for its emblematic families…

M – In your opinion, what makes the new Méduse Autumn/Winter 2015-16 Collection original and why?

N – Méduse are not just making kids’ plastic sandals anymore, and we want people to know it! They have such lovely boots and ankle-boots, plain colors, audacious cuts and the addition of leather on some models… I love the new collection: so chic and comfortable!

Nolwenn Crème

M – What should be the next step of Méduse tour of France? And Why?

N – I think that the next step of Méduse France tour should be Bordeaux! The Atlantic ocean runs along the city, and a lot of people, just like me, have memories of Méduse next to the Arcachon Bay, the Pyla sand dune… And also because the Bordeaux bloggers like La Penderie de Chloé or Noholita would be gorgeous in Méduse!

We have so much jelly love for you, Nolwenn! Keep shining in Meduse and sharing your love for Nantes and nostalgic jelly tales. Thank you for a fab interview! Don’t forget, Meduse fans, to check out Nolwenn’s blog to read more about what makes Nolwenn a Meduse favourite. She’s the crème de la crème!

Méduse Talks … With Eva-Mona

10 Mar , 2015  

Collage Méduse Jumpy boots animal print cheese cake by eva mona

 

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…

 

It’s time to dare with Méduse! We’re feeling wild and adventurous, as it’s animal print week! And there’s nothing better than getting into the wild spirit, than with our best buddies: leopard, zebra and panther Jumpy! So, today we are talking to a very special guest, who loves to roam around in her Zebra Jumpy boots. She’s a blogger, painter and a total food-lover. We give you Eva-Mona from Aprilfourteenth!

 

 

Is it the way you dress that influences your mood? Or rather your mood inspiring the way you dress?

My clothes usually illustrate my mood – depending on my daily schedule, I can wear casual clothes, dress like an artist or be fancy dressed.

 

Does wearing your zebra Jumpy or leopard print Jumpy make you feel wilder? More energetic?

I don’t know about wilder but definitely more energetic yes ! 😉

 

eva mona

What colour do you prefer to wear with this kind of animal print?

Usually, I will prefer dark colors when wearing my Jumpy boots. I prefer to dress simple, so I can draw more attention to the animal print!

Could you draw an animal that represents you? ( No worries, we are not expecting a piece of art, a quick sketch on Paint will be perfect 😀 )

A tiger-striped cat stretching out… Here is my drawing !

We could not help ourselves out – we went through all your cooking creations… and it made us really, really, really hungry ! So, we here’s your culinary challenge: we dare you to cook anything you like with an animal print on it. Zebra stripes or leopard spots – you decide ! Of course, if you complete the challenge, you can challenge us to do something! 😉

For the Méduse challenge, I created a cheesecake with a cherry sauce. I used Zebra stripes to decorate this Amarena cheesecake with Amarena cherries and white chocolate. You can find the receipe on my blog Spoonencore.

OH MY. Someone fetch us a spoon! And only one spoon – we’re not sharing, #sorrynotsorry.

Are you ready to step into the wild with Méduse? All week, we’ll be featuring the best of animal print, so don’t go anywhere!

Eva-Mona, you’ve been amazing, your cheesecake looks epic and you keep rockin’ those Jumpy boots! You can keep up to date with Eva-Mona’s culinary and artsy world on her Instagram, her personal diary and food blog here.
