‘I would definitely take your Méduse Jumpy boots travelling anywhere’

A fashion blogger, curious spirit and globe trekker – Samantha has it all! Coming from all the way down under (Australia), this cool cat came to our attention when we spotted her original sense of style. Not only is she up for the #MeduseColor challenge, she’s also game for our interview! Check it out…  

M – So jelly lover, how would you introduce yourself in a few words?
S – My name is Samantha and I run my own Fashion/Travel Blog called Rapunzille. I’m Australian but I am always seeking my next adventure!
I use fashion as a way to express who I am and how I feel. I love to travel often to continuously throw myself into new situations. I find that it helps me grow as a person – especially my last trip to Canada for nearly 7 months!
I’m a Graphic Designer, so I’m infatuated with prints and colours! Which drew me to Méduse’s amazing collection of shoes! I associate colour with being happy and also the summertime! My two favourite things!

M – So we had a sneaky look at your blog (it’s too good!), and saw that you like to visit our beloved Paris! What makes you love the place so much? Is it the French culture? Fashion? Food? Or something else?
S – Oh my goodness! Paris is divine! The architecture makes me feel as though I’ve stepped into a fairytale. The fact that so many influential fashion designers are based in Paris makes me infatuated with the city! However, the food, the language and the lifestyle is far different than to what I’m used to! This excites me and makes me want to keep visiting Paris, and also explore the rest of France! At one point last year I was learning French, and I had so much fun doing it, but life got in the way. I do need to start practising again soon!

M – Your snapshots are shot in beautiful settings, such as Canada! If you were to have a photoshoot in our Jumpy boots (our take on the Chelsea boots), where would you go?
S – Thanks! Canada was beautiful ! I’ve done sooooo much travelling (more countries to be added to the blog soon) that I’m finally back in Australia and appreciate the amazing natural wonders that I have in my own country! I would definitely take your Méduse Jumpy boots travelling anywhere, they are so versatile and really jazz up the average fashion boot! I would climb rocks on the beautiful sandy Australian beaches with my Jumpy boots and go on adventures in the Blue Mountains etc! I would also definitely pack them for my next trip to Europe!

M – And finally! You’ve just submitted a superb photo for #MeduseColor contest – well done! What was the inspiration behind your outfit? Do you like to mix and match colour?
S – Thank you ! The inspiration behind it actually was that I got that dress in a little shop in Nice, France. I thought it would be perfect to enter a dress I bought in France for the competition! The patterns remind me of the detail on the architecture in Europe! The patterns on the dress, mixed with the red colour and brown and white bag, create a casual summer look that mixes up colours in a fun vibrant way !

die and Joy shows that! Mixing a dusty pink shirt,
with some cool 
denim shorts, finished with our

bright coral SUNLIGHT, it’s a look that

Méduse Talks With Grace – A creative mind in the sky…

17 Jun , 2015  

Untitled design (1)

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

“I am a tiny Irish girl who does her very best to be a tiny bit French.”

Coming from all the way in Ireland, Grace is now a nurse based in London and boy, has she got that ‘London street style’ with a hint of Frenchness. (Just check out her London rooftop shoot in Méduse!) The mash up of owning the best of these two looks, is what keeps her ticking, and her snapshots speak for themself. With bundles of energy and unlimited creativity, Grace is a wise one!

M: So! Who are you jelly lover?
G: Hi! I’m Gracie I am a tiny Irish girl who does her very best to be a tiny bit French.

M: Tell us a bit more about your photoshoot in Méduses! What were the ideas behind the shots?
G: So we thought about the brand and the history of the shoe. I wanted to keep it simple and chic but also very true to my personal style! I teamed the meduse with a classic Breton strip top and navy silk shorts, basically what I live in during the (cold) British summer!

 

Meduse interview - Grace2

M: We’re in love with your Instagram – it shows such character from your personal life, to the idols you love. How does your Instagram reflect who you are and your loves in life?
G: I take my job extremely seriously however I really need to detach from it. I decided to use my Instagram as a medium to meet other creative minds. I’m honest and open and I think that comes across on my page.

M: As you’re a fashion expert, can you tell us what to wear with Méduse? 😉
G: Everything ! I will be wearing them for my surf holiday in Biarritz in July and as it cools down I will be wearing them with knee socks and an LBD around Shoreditch !

M: And one last thing! What 4 blogs do you recommend keeping an eye on?
G: Oh my god only 4 ?! Ok my really good friend Jess (we both worked as waitresses when I first moved to London) : @ihavethisthingfor .
I also love @eastlondonkiddo who takes beautiful photographs!
I adore this Irish beauty @thebubblecollective
This last girl has incredible style and is also Irish: @eimearvarianbarry

We told you so! Grace is a gal who’s tip-top on Instagram and she certainly knows a thing or two about what stars to keep an eye on! Sending you a huge jelly high-five Grace, we hope you loved standing on top of London’s skyline in our Méduse! Keep up to date with her musings and snapshots here.

Méduse Talks… With Joséphine L.

3 Apr , 2015  

Jo Lignac Socks & Jellies Set Featured Image

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

Yo! Yo! Between Paris, where she is living her student life – let’s be honest, that’s really PARTY, PARTY, PARTY (haha) and Bordeaux, where she is loving life under the sun and on beaches – well, for us – that still means party, party, party! 😉 Joséphine is painting the town pink!

Jo7 - Meduse interview

On your Instagram you describe yourself as a girl between two cities! How do you identify yourself as a Parisian? And as a Bordelaise girl?

I would say that Paris represents my student life, filled with cultural activites. It’s a city I really love, every street corner is beautiful, I could walk for hours on end, if I had time!

Bordeaux is a place for my holidays – I love the sun and the beach life. It’s my family town, where I spent my childhood.  

Jo5 - Meduse interviewJo1 - Meduse interview

We spent some time on your Instagram, and we noticed that you love pink! So what does this colour mean to you?

Oh yes indeed, I have a little addiction for the colour! For me, it’s a colour which represents softness and childhood, as well as femininity and sensuality. And well, it’s pink – it always makes people happy!

Jo8- Meduse interview

We love going on an adventure! Where would you take Méduse in Bordeaux?

Without any hesitation, I would take you to the Miroir d’Eau. It’s not very original but Méduse would be perfect to be in, by the water. Otherwise, I would take my Méduse to Karl for brunch, walk around St Catherine street and enjoy the taste of cannelés on a terrace. Once, I put on my Méduse during shopping, and people were very surprised, to see me wearing these kinda shoes on the street. But I am 100% proud to wear them!

Jo2_Meduse interview

You’re the queen for the day, what do you do?

I would demand that pink would be the dress-code for everyone, or people would have to pay a fine! And of course, having free shopping / shop without paying 😉

 

What do you have in your bag?

  • Red lipstick (I can’t live without it)
  • A nail file
  • Hand sanitiser
  • A toiletry bag
  • My pink Ipod
  • My pink notebook
  • My glasses
  • My purse, of course

 

Jo4 - Meduse interview

Challenge! We’d like you to tell a joke for April Fool’s!

I’m really rubbish at jokes but I’ll give it a go!

What’s a Méduse (jellyfish) in chocolate called?

A Kinder chocolate!
…. I told you I was rubbish.

 

Ah come on! That’s a very sweet joke! If it’s mentioning Méduse – we will always love it 😉

Thanks Joséphine! We’re hoping for more surprises on your Instagram! Guys, we encourage you to have a look her awesome / arty photos – it’s even better than her joke! Haha 😉

Plastic is fantastic

9 Mar , 2015

Originally published in W Magazine (October 2006)

The fantastic thing with plastic is that it fits with all moods, styles, regardless the colour of the sky. How easy it is to create a multitude of looks throughout the year.

With Meduse, your feet could be the main character of a Kim Ki Duk’s movie, “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring“. All the time, everywhere. Satine, Sun, Jumpail, Flumpail… and Satine.

Wearing plastic is like red lipstick. It makes you stand out. Either you want to add a poetic, futuristic or intriguing touch of boldness and creativity. It can be combined with the more classic outfit and inject a fresh breeze of playfulness and coolitude. Materials blend together, tranparency makes it aerial, colour conbination are endless.

From catwalk to everyday life, plastic comes now in all sort of wearables, clothes and accessories.  It’s not audacious to say that the simplest detail that create the most sophisticate effect.

Here are few ideas to add an interesting twist to your outfit:

liquid-filled plastic collar

Half sheer bag
Haf sheer Bag • Jil Sander

Plastic bra

biker-jacket

Wanda nylon, transparent biker jacket • Farfetch
