Méduse talks with… KADI LV

25 May , 2016  

160428_KADI-LV-POST_02

Say hello to Kadi, a Parisian Art Director, who is fascinated by Korean fashion and the digital world. Make room for our creative dreamer…

M: Hey there Kadi! We’re pleased to have you in the hot-seat! So we’ll give the mic to you! Tell us more about yourself!
K: Hi everyone, my name is Kadi! I am a Parisian 26 year old, crazy about digital and fashion. As a career, I am an Digital Art Director in an agency. In my personal life, I have a fashion blog, Kadi LV, which I created over a year ago. I made it after one of my friends told me to do so, and I don’t regret it in the slightest! I love writing articles, especially about my outfits, inspired by Korean fashion.

M: As you’re an Art director, you must have plenty of cool creative things to keep you busy. Can you tell us more about the projects you work on? Have you always had an artistic mind?
K: In general, I work on website creation for ad campaigns, mobiles and web apps. I also make visuals for specific brands on social networks (mostly on Facebook and Instagram).
Concerning the projects, there are a lot in agencies! My favourite brands that I’ve been working for are Puma and Sony, in partnership with Spotify. It’s a real pleasure because they have a real visual universe which is awesome!
Regarding creation, I have studied art but I always liked painting and drawing (even writing novels) when I was younger. I would say that I have an artistic mind. Nevertheless, digital creation requires a lot of technical skills, which I acquired with different formations.

M: Of course, you’re a fashionista, just like us! What are the trends and styles you’ll be sporting this spring?
K: With great weather just around the corner, open air festivals are on their way (for example Coachella, which just ended). Thus, light blouses, white or with coloured floral patterns are a must have for this spring. Also, casual boho dresses paired with a denim jacket for the day, and with a leather jacket for the night. The good weather gives us the perfect opportunity to wear sandals or ballerinas :-).

M: We have a little fashion challenge for you, and we’re sure you’re gonna ace it. Could you pair one of our summer shoes with a few clothes and accessories you have your eye on?
K: This was a tricky one for me, but my favourite pair is the Capri model in silver. I love the criss-cross design and I think it can fit with a lot of different outfits, for day or night! I have paired it with this gorgeous Oasis dress, a Nasty Gal leather jacket, a Kenzo Kalifornia bag, Quay sunglasses and for a little touch of Korean fashion, a necklace and a bracelet from Kitsch Island.

M: Howdy Jennifer! Hope you’re dandy! Our notebook is at the ready – so, tell us a bit more about yourself.

 

J : Hey hey! I’m Jennifer, I’m 25 and I live in La Rochelle in France. I’m a real girly girl, so my universe and photography really echo that – just take a look at my Instagram and you’ll see for yourself! I have a wide range of loves, come along and discover it!

M: We’ve spotted on your Instagram that you love to scribble and write. What kind of things do you like to write about? Any inspirations?

 

J: Indeed! I My writing varies from writing personal reviews about beauty and makeup, or it can be about my personal life and what I’m up to. I find my inspiration from many places – iconic bloggers and books that I enjoy.

 

2

 

M: We think you know by now that we’re in love with your Instagram! How do you prepare your posts? Do you have any tips for posting gorgeous snapshots?

 

J : Thanks very much!
What I would say to girls and guys is that they should post what they really like and stay true to themselves. Perhaps it’s a particular theme or a certain tone of colours. To be honest, most of my photos are taken in the moment. For others, I try to set up a setting / stage. Nevertheless, it always keeps in tone with my whole feed. I think people can feel it and that’s why they like it.

M: We have a little challenge for you! We dare you to pick your fave pair of Méduse from our collection and mix and match with some fashion pieces that you love. Good luck!

 

J: Okay! So I’ve picked a simple but chic outfit with JUMPMAT boots, perfect for spring. I’ve paired them with skinny jeans (which I wear a lot) with a floaty blouse and a long camel blazer. Match that with mirror glasses and a classic black  handbag, and you’re good to go!

M – So not only did you guys get an outfit for spring, you also got top tips for a pretty Instagram. What more could you want?! Thanks for speaking to us Jennifer! Until next time…

MÉDUSE TALKS WITH… CATIA

10 Feb , 2016  

catiacatoofeature

Last week, we caught up with the fashion fanatic, violet-haired blogger So Pretty Little ThingsThis week, we interview Catia, an InstaBlogger who loves photography and audiovisual media. Discover Catia, a young lady who is a curious kitten, with a penchant for animals.

1

M – You’re a film and audiovisual media student and you’re also an InstaBlogger! Could reveal more about yourself?
C – Hello artists and Méduse! I am Catia with a C, I am 23 and I am passionate about the arts. I like simplicity, travelling, exploring and exotism. By the way, one of my wishes is to travel around the world. I am also a very positive person. Despite negative things, I try to see the best out of a bad situation. It permits me to go on and to not feel downhearted. Happiness comes first from yourself, don’t you think? So, I blossom and share my good vibes to everyone. I don’t like to be surrounded by grumpy people!

catia

M –  Animal protection is a very important cause to you. You have several animals yourself, could you introduce them to us? And if you had to pick your favourite animal, what would it be?
C – Yes, I loooove animals! I have a dog, a cat and a few birds. If I could look after several animals or found a refuge, I would do it. I always lived with animals, since I was young; looking after and protecting them. For me, animals are very important, just like nature and they deserve respect. My favourite? That’s a tricky one! I love all animals so much from teeny tiny shells to gigantic whales.  
 oiseau
M – Has being a film student influenced the way you take snapshots?
C – I’m not sure to be honest… I study theoretical cinema and photography which gives me good practice for my hobby. I’m no professional, but taking pictures and working with light is essential. I hope to improve myself and I want to pursue my studies in cinema pictures a bit more.  Finally, I think that the arts is something that can’t be taught. You either you have a sensitive feeling for art or not. I certainly have an artistic side, which has pushed me to study this field. And to link a personal passion to a job is so rewarding.

M – And now for your challenge! What are your favourite Méduse boots? Could you prepare us an outfit showing off your personal style with a pair of our boots?
C – This the look I was thinking about… I chose the Jumperic boots, paired with some boyfriend jeans, a black jacket, a silver ring and a planet bag for a quirky touch. 

catiacatoopost

M – Thanks Catia for joining us this week! You’re totally right about having that knack for the arts – we certainly do feel like arty farties ourselves! Check out her awesome snapshots on her Instagram here!

MÉDUSE TALKS WITH… SO PRETTY LITTLE THINGS

3 Feb , 2016  

SoPrettyLittleThings Featured

 

Last week, we caught up with 5Pockets Team, who gave us a masterclass on denim. This week, we discover Jess of Soprettylittlethings, a violet-haired blogger passionate about fashion cooking up a storm in the kitchen.

 

‘I have chosen the Jumpat boots because I think they’re perfect with its touch of camel.’

M – Hey there Jess ! So we’ve spotted that you’re a fashion, beauty, cooking and lifestyle blogger. Could you tell us some more facts and features about yourself?
J – Hi everyone, I’m Jess, a blogger from the south of France. I am crazy about fashion, rugby, cooking and Disney (yes, I have a range of different passions!) I like to share my personal loves and interests with my readers but I also involve my boyfriend with whom I do style articles with from time to time.

2

M – We noticed on your blog that you showcase a lot of gluten-free recipes – we can hear our stomach rumbling! When did you start to cook without gluten? And do you have a favourite recipe for winter?
J – It’s been quite a while since I’ve been cooking gluten-free, but I’m not doing it because it’s in trend or as a diet, but because I’m gluten intolerant, thus I can’t eat it. There are loads of comforting recipes in winter, and one of my favourites is chocolate cake – it’s my guilty pleasure!

4

M – We also noticed that you’re a big fan of deco! What’s the ‘must have’ of this season?
J – For fashion and deco this season, the top trend is texture and materials – you have to experiment, get creative and play with them! We’re moving away from the once trendy marble and metal features, to wood, which will become popular once again around the home.

1

M – We have a challenge for you! Could you choose your favourite pair of Méduse shoes (high boots or ankle boots) and create a styleboard? You can pick up all the clothes and accessories that’s right up your street!
J – I have chosen the Jumpat boots because I think they’re perfect with its touch of camel (one of my favourite colours). They’re versatile and can be paired with skirts, dresses, shorts, jeans and trousers. They are classic and modern at the same time. I’ve paired them with winter clothes, with a slight boho theme!

Thanks a lot for joining us this week! We’re loving your boho-chic vibe, and we’ll certainly take on your tips for styling up the home and cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Catch up with Jess’s blog and Instagram – she’s one not to miss!

Nature out of bed

28 Jan , 2016  

NatureOutOfBed (1)

Every week, we will explore a new trend with our fun and quirky eye! This week, we say yes to nature ouf of bed.

 

Calling all night owls – your chance to come alive isn’t just at twilight. Pretty pyjamas is the style that’s waking up the world. That’s right – the ‘nature out of bed’ look is a new trend that works all around the clock. It’s comfiness and cocoon style carries a hint of the 90’s grunge, with an element of floral femininity. One blogger who has already embarked on this trend is @laugh_of_artist who captures a style of being as snug as a bug in a rug.

NatureOutOfBedStyleboard (1)

 

Just like Victoria, you can achieve this look by working fifty shades of grey, chunky knits and floral patterns. Topshop have a light, floral pair of pyjama bottoms, perfect for catching up on beauty sleep or lunch in town. Prefer a dressed-down look? This Ted Baker floral sweatshirt is your go-to piece to pair with a pair of boyfriend jeans. No ‘nature out of bed’ look would be complete with a scarf – we’re in love with this dusky pink floral scarf by Jigsaw which nails this trend to a T. Complete with our comfy Jumper boots to add that street-style edge that rocks the city.

Next time you open your wardrobe, swap playsuits for pj’s and shirts for sweaters.

MEDUSE TALKS WITH… 5POCKETS

27 Jan , 2016  

5Pockets_Featured

In our last interview, we met Slanelle, an influential top fashion blogger who loves nothing more than updating her wardrobe with eye-catching finds, and playing her guitar in her spare time.

This week, we meet 5Pockets, a blog dedicated to jeans and denim! Curious? Read here!

‘We’re going for your Flamille High Boots which are really awesome!’

Screenshot_12

M – Hello Team 5Pockets! We’ve had a look on your blog and it’s certain to say that you guys are devoted to denim! Can you tell us a bit more about how your project started?
P – Indeed, we are devoted to denim! We think that all wardrobes need to have a nice selection of jeans as they are at the centre of fab outfits. We launched our blog almost one year ago, with an aim to be part of the online denim world. We chose the name ‘5 Pockets’ because it represents the 5 famous pockets of the denim.

12552191_628744940614217_702334446_n

M – We’ve noticed that your blog also shows another dimension, about well-being – which we love! Do you have any tips on feeling fantastic this winter?
P – We launched our well-being section because we think that feeling comfortable in your own clothes is feeling comfortable in your own skin. Our beauty tips for this winter: tea, tea and tea! We’re crazy about tea – not only do we drink it, we also apply it on our eyes when we find it tricky to wake up in the mornings. Nevertheless, you need to choose a good tea – be careful with supermarkets brands! Also, don’t wait till the summer to take up a sport – sport is built for everyday! It’s important to feel good in your jeans, even when you’re hiding under a big coat 😉

Screenshot_11

M – What are the jeans that are hot on the scene right now? Do you have a style that is a must-have this season? If so, how should we style them up?  
P – This is not an easy question! It depends on your shape. Today, more than ever, the fashion market is divided and a lot of niche trends exist. We advise you to have a look at our Ebook (free of course) which will help you to find your shape, the perfect pair of jeans for you and some outfits for inspiration.  

Screenshot_10

M – And now for your challenge! That’s right, we challenge you to pick a pair of jeans along with a few other seasonal fashion pieces that would match with a pair of our Meduse boots! You can create the ‘styleboard’ or you can pick the items and our designer will mock it up for you.
P – Let’s go! We’re going for your Flamille High Boots which are really awesome! Paired with black skinny jeans, a beige jumper and a long camel coat (we love this kind of outfit at the moment!). Something like this.

5Pockets_Styleboard

Bootcut, skinny, mom – we’re spoilt for choice! Thanks for joining us Team 5Pockets! You’ve just made us even more obsessed about denim! Take a look at their blog here for tips and tricks on how to work the best out of your jeans.

Space Samurai

21 Jan , 2016  

Space Samurai

Every week, we will explore a new trend with our fun and quirky eye! This week, we say yes to Space Samurai.

Step into the year 3000. What does it look like? To us, it looks like 2016.

We’ve been reminded of this snapshot of the late David Bowie, an icon who challenged the norm and tested the boundaries of fashion, art and of course music. He was a legend who always got it right, in his oddity. Here he poses with Kansai Yamamoto in an outfit with a name that’s forecasted this season – Space Samurai.

kansai yam

It’s a look that’s travelled from 1971, to today. This season takes inspiration from sublime nature – think thunderstorms, silver lightning, pale blue icicles and the gold streams of shooting stars. Geometrics, galaxy aesthetics, pale cosmos shades and futuristic edges dominate this trend. Match our sparkling Jumpail chelsea boots with these edgy, geometric silver brocade trousers from Lulu & Co, a Reiss metallic tank top and embellish with triangle earrings from Oasis. Fashion from the future – now.

So follow in the footsteps of Ziggy and don’t be afraid to step out into a new galaxy of style.

We’ll leave you with this…

Poetic Rock

14 Jan , 2016  

Poetic Rock

Every week, we will explore a new trend with our fun and quirky eye! This week, we say yes to Poetic Rock.

Bring together poetry and rock and what do you get? Either a lyrical ballad from Bob Dylan or an eccentric hybrid that the late David Bowie crafted. That’s right, the two concepts are uniting to form a new trend ‘Poetic Rock’. It’s a mysterious mash-up that’s hard to put your finger on but one thing we know for sure is that it definitely rocks our boat.

Intense nocturnal shades of greys, pinks and mauves meet post-punk and gothic influences – optical checks, liberty prints, leather net and mesh and shimmering furs sing on the scene. Take inspiration from this shaggy faux fur jacket from Urban Bliss or these majestic Mango pieces; a metallic rhinestone choker and a tassel chain bag.

It’s a new look that screams femininity with an edge. As Bob Dylan predicted – The Times They Are A Changin’…

Royalty for Méduse !

7 Jan , 2016  

Royalty Jelly Lesson

New year: new section !

Every week, we will explore a new trend with our fun and quirky eye! This week, we say yes to Royalty fashion.

It doesn’t take much to be a Queen Bee. With all the right crown jewels, it’s just a few steps away. This year we’re taking a step away from mustards shades and chunky knitwear and we’re stepping into a parlour of royalty. What holds court this season are flourishes of hard clutches, soft velvets, silk jacquards, fur and plenty of jewels.

Rich marsala, classic royal purple and divine ebony are charming the scene right now; take note of pieces from Ted Baker with an embellished red-wine dress, a cranberry faux fur scarf from Jigsaw and a regal royal embroidered clutch from Zara.

Think majestic mode this season and you’ll be on track to stately styles just like Queen Bey herself.
