You’ve already met MeduseColor winners Charlotte and RhiannonThis week, Méduse talks with… Marion!

Earlier this summer, we challenged you guys to get colour crazy for our competition #MeduseColor. Many of you entered and showed off your colour creations, but there were three stand-outs who made it to the top! Introducing one of our winners: Marion Clavière, a lifestyle blogger with a passion for fashion, books, socks and Méduse!

Marion

Méduse –  Woohoo! You are now part of the Méduse family! So tell us a bit more about yourself – who are you, jelly lover?

Marion – I’m a 24 year old community manager and communication consultant, but I’m also a blogger who’s addicted to books and pretty socks!

Méduse – Méduse brings a lot of stories and memories from the past and present. What’s your story with Méduse?

Marion – Méduse is a story that’s stuck with my family; my grand-parents and parents don’t have the best memories but they were made to wear them if they went on holiday or if they went fishing! But to me it’s different. I see it as an extension of French traditions and the evolution of an emblematic shoe, made in France. Back in the day it was made to be worn when at the sea or by the lake, but now they are suitable for city life, going to work or even for wearing at parties!

Méduse – Sticking with the #MeduseColor theme, what’s your favourite colour? What does it represent to you?

Marion – I‘m definitely a person who loves classic things, so I’ll always opt for black or navy Méduses, but I must say, I fell for the straw-coloured Paille SUN during my holiday! They’re more colourful but they’re also cute and subtle – a perfect match for my classic look.

Méduse – Speaking of fashion, you won 3 very different pairs of Méduse shoes! How will you style each of them up? Where will you journey to in them? We’d love to see some pics!  

Marion – I will be wearing my black SUN sandals everywhere this autumn, and I’ll be styling them with socks, tights, jeans or a skirt. I’ll either style them up with a complete black look for a fun touch, or in a preppy style with a skater skirt and a pretty blouse. But for work or meetings with clients, I’ll wear them with jeans and a blouse, for a smart / casual look.
My salmon JUMPY are so punchy! I picture wearing them for a casual rainy day ride or for a stylish Sunday morning at a market. They are absolutely perfect when worn with light colours, during summer rain.
My SALDANO are perfect to enjoy a good book sitting on the grass or by the shore of a lake!

Well Marion, you’re getting us ready for autumn – we’ll be rocking the socks and jellies look, don’t you worry! 😉 Many thanks for having a little chit-chat with us! We love your photos, and we know you’re gonna style up our Méduse just the way we like it – fun, French and original! Keep up to date with Marion’s blog Books & Socks here!

Méduse & Charlotte Hollycat

12 Aug , 2015  

Charlotte hollycat

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

‘I hope my Méduses tour the world!’

Méduse talks with… Charlotte!

Cats and Méduse – probably the two coolest things on the planet, and y’know what? Charlotte knows it! Let us introduce you to Charlotte Hollycat – a happy-snapping photography lover, rainbow adorer and #MeduseColor winner!

M – You are now part of the Méduse family! Who are you Jelly lover?

C – My name is Charlotte or @ _Hollycat on Instagram, I’m nearly 25 and I’ve been living in Montpellier since the start of this year. I’m passionate about photography, a summer-lover and I’m a big kid! It’s one of the reasons why I took my Méduses to live with me, down in the south of France with my boyfriend. It’s funny that you say that I’m part of the Méduse family, it’s true because my boyfriend is fascinated by jellyfish! I’m currently working for a mobile and fibre network but I hope to change soon, but I’m not sure what field just yet!

M – Méduse often recalls sentimental memories and stories from the past and present. What’s your story with Méduse?

C – Indeed, I think that with everyone Méduse reminds us of our childhood – when we went to the seaside with our parents, we wore our Méduses in the water. It wasn’t for style purposes, but more to avoid cuts from shells or stings from sea creatures; but today, we wear Méduse to show off its fashion features. Youngsters and older generations are wearing their Méduses to go to the beach or even downtown – they’re so comfortable! When I hear the word  « Méduse » I think of the shoes, but also the animal, naturally because of my boyfriend! I find the animal fascinating as they’re so colourful, just like your lovely shoes! Colours that make you think about summer, happiness… life.

M – Going back to #MeduseColor! What’s your favourite colour and what does it represent to you?

C – It’s a tough choice, as I love many colours, and I have my phases. Many will say red because it’s the colour of sensuality and love – it’s the colour to give a ‘pizzazz’ to a woman’s face. But if I had to choose a particular colour I would go for blue, sky blue, because to me it represents freedom, the ability to fly away and to travel. But also, all the beings that are now up above, that we love and won’t forget… they are watching us from the sky. There is also ocean-blue which is a reminder of the vast stretch where jellyfish live, I’m absolutely fascinated with sea life, but at the same time it scares me a little. But as I said, I love summer, beaches and Méduse!

M – Speaking about fashion! You won three pairs of Méduses, each with a very different style. What outfit will you match them with? Where will you journey to in them? We’d love to see some snapshots!

C – I’m not the kind of girl who will prepare her outfit the night before, or ask herself how she is going to wear a specific piece of clothing. I’m more of a ‘wanna try any style combination’ type of person, even if I’m running late! I love looking through my stuff to experiment with numerous outfits. So it’s hard for me to answer your question. I will style my Méduses with dresses, jeans, shorts… ANYTHING! It’s really down to the spur of the moment. And where will I walk in them? Well anywhere I’ll be going, I love to travel! I hope my Méduses tour the world!

You promised that your Méduses would go on adventures – and you’ve kept it ;-). Charlotte, we hope you make many more memories with Méduse! Whether you’re hanging by jellyfish in your SUN Méduse or simply going for a stroll in your Jumpy boots during the Autumn showers! Keep up to date with Charlotte’s daily snapshots on her Instagram here!
