Méduse Talks With… Méduse !!!

17 Apr , 2015  

2

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

Come on! You have to admit it. The new Méduse collection for Spring / Summer 15 is pretty damn awesome ;-). We’re forever twirling in our sparkling Nikita and we dance and prance on the rooftops of Paris in our new colours of the season.

But our inspiration stems from the heroic geniuses backstage, and we decided to chat to the clever clogs about the spirit and thought process behind our current season!

Meduse - New Rainbow

 

Our new collection is filled with colours that enhance the styles at Méduse. What would be THE word to describe this collection?

CANDY : because of the pastel mix that makes us think of sugar almonds and candy! And most of all, the nostalgic “back to childhood” spirit of our SUN jellies!

The new SUNLIGHT are a sparkling inspiration 😉 ! Where would be the best spots to wear them ?

Ibiza at sunset to party all night long! And for the kiddos : perfect to play ghosts in the dark :-)

Meduse - Glow in the dark

 

The new Saumon and Vert d’eau colors are a perfect match with the pastel trend. Why did you pick these colours ?

We needed some sweet tastes for the summer. Pastel are soft and feminine colours, which introduce the Spring season, the softness of the morning dew and the pleasure of sweet moments.

The new magazine for the new collection in collaboration with Les Paulettes is featured with pictures on the rooftops of Paris. What is the inspiration behind these pictures ?

The rooftops of Paris are synonymous with escapism and city adventure! This is the place where you chill with a few drinks with your friends or have a romantic time with your lover. It is a way to escape from the bustling city when in reality you can’t. But this is what Méduse is about – a walking holiday in the city!

Et voila! Words of wisdom from our backstage team!

A huge THANKS to the designers of Méduse, for sharing their words and spirit with us! Keep it up! <3

When you search hard for something, and you find that piece of gold, it’s magic. So when we found creative busy-bee DearJoy. we were over the moon that we managed to have a chit-chat with her! What a result!

 

me2

What feature of your personality defines you as an original person?

I am a non conformist person. I am not a part of Panurge – if I do, I’m not in my zone and I’m not myself.

If you’re on the hunt for an outfit for a summer’s day, what things would you be looking for?

For summer, I would look for a new pair of sunglasses. Mine are not adapted to my eyesight anymore haha! In general, I like to go for dark brown sunglasses, never black.

bim

 

What superpower, do you wish you had?

I would say, the power to snap my fingers and get what I want.


Dearjoy - Meduse

 

What was the last thing, that made you laugh?

THIS VIDEO! HAHA!

 

CHALLENGE! We’re in love with your Pinterest, so we challenge you to create one moodboard of six images… about what Meduse evokes to you!

Et voilà!

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 😉

Méduse Talks With… Eva, of Girls’n Nantes

31 Mar , 2015  

GirlsNantes - Meduse interview 3

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

We’re whisking you off to a fairy-tale land with Eva, a blogger from Nantes who rides on her unicorn and sprinkles her glitter dust all around her town. She’s quirky, cool and leaves a sparkly trail of Méduse wherever she goes!

GirlsNantes - Meduse interview 2

Who are you Jelly lover?

Eva, 34 years old, and still in good shape ! I have 2 kids, who are 4 and 6 (rock’n’roll!). I write a lifestyle blog, where I make my readers discover Nantes on a unicorn’s back. My favorite colour is a sparkly pink !

 

What makes you an eccentric person?

Good question, I have always felt a bit different! I would say that I sparkle from head to toe.

 GirlsNantes - Meduse interview 4

Tell us something crazy you have done!

I lived in Paris for 10 years! Unbearable for a country girl, or someone like me coming from a smaller city. I’m kidding, I enjoyed my life in Paris. I do crazy things everyday and I want every minute to be a burst of laughter.

 

One word to describe Méduse 😀 ?

Only one ? FUN.

 

We read a recent article on your blog about the “do’s & don’ts” for Spring. What would be your ‘do’s’ for wearing Méduse this summer?

At the beach, on the rocks, at parties with sparkling socks and a mini skirt, and in town of course. There’s no specific reason. Everything goes with Méduse!

 

We have a lot in common Eva – we are also from Nantes :-). If you were to take someone to visit Nantes, where would you go?

Ooh, a neighbor from Nantes <3

I would take them on a traditional tour to the “Les Machines de l’Ile”, a visit to the Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne where I am living of course! … not really ;-).

Then, I’d go for a stroll in Trentemoult, a drink at the bar Le Nid, and try out all the good restaurants.. because food is life!

 GirlsNantes - Meduse interview

Et voila! We’re off now, to hop on Eva’s unicorn and fly back to our hometown of Méduse! Fancy joining?

We’d like to send a huge jelly-hug to Eva, for her interview! You’ve been a star – or should we say unicorn 😉

Discover Eva’s blog, Twitter and Facebook  to see what magic she sparks in her world!

Au revoir for now!

Méduse Talks… With Emma Eliott

20 Mar , 2015  

Close Up Emma's Meduse Jumpy Boots

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

It’s officially Spring today! Yes, the clouds may still be hanging about, but we’re certain that the sun will shine… soon!

But to get us prepped and ready for Spring fashion trends, we spoke to a fashionista who’s in love with vintage style, photography and is a total Jumpy lover! Her Instagram is a place where you can daydream about walks in nature, scrummy food and life in her Jumpy boots (there’s lots of them!). It’s Emma Eliott!

Emma in Black Jumpy Boots
Spring is coming!  Are you more flower power or rockstar?

I would say I am more “flower power!”
I am nowhere near cool enough for Rock Star!
I try to be a really happy and positive person and I love to put a quirky spin on any style I embrace, I love to look at things a little differently!
Emma Eliott in Black Jumpy Boots
Describe this season in 3 words.
I think for me especially in my role in retail, I get such a thrill buying and seeing each new season unfold.
This season to me can be summed up as, pastels, monochrome, and prints. (So hard for me not to say AMAZING, INSPIRING, ASPIRATIONAL before each one!)
Emma's Meduse Jumpy Styleboard
Which colour Méduse says ‘spring’ to you and why?
I have to say that the colour Méduse that makes me so excited and totally embodies spring for me is the SUN Paille sandal.
sunpaille__074895800_1712_18112014
They are so fresh and cheerful in daffodil yellow that they would look super cute with pretty ankle socks and boyfriend jeans right now and amazing in the hot sun with a pretty little summer dress. Just gorgeous!!
Emma's Meduse Jumpy Boots
We love your pics on Instagram… Tell us, what is your favourite Instagram filter? What does it say to you?
Posting pictures on Instagram gives me such pleasure! And has really allowed my confidence in my style to grow.
My favourite filter is for sure Valencia, it works so well at diffusing the light in a gentle way, with a cool yellow tint that really brings my pictures to life. It says “fresh” which resonates with me as I love to look at fashion and styling in a fresh and new way.

Quirky question alert!

When is your birthday and what would be your ideal gift?

Well! My birthday falls on September 23rd and I have to be honest I have got my heart set on a pair of Méduse Jumpy in Saumon/Crêpe.
jumpysaumoncrepe__083221300_1751_18112014
I love, love this colour! It is neutral enough enough to work with any outfit and pretty enough to cheer up any rainy September days that Autumn may bring! Heaven!
Emma Eliott in Black Jumpy Boots 2
What superpower do you wish you had?
Oooooo! If I had a super power it would definitely be the ability to be invisible!
Just imagine all the front row shows at Paris fashion week I could sneak into!!! Wearing my Méduse Jumpy’s of course!!
Emma, you’ve totally got us in the mood for Spring. COME ON SUNSHINE!
Screenshot (28)
We hope you have lots of fun with all your Jumpy boots, and we want to thank you for your contribution to the Méduse world!
And to all our dear friends, check out Emma’s Instagram here. It will make you smile, for sure! X

Méduse Talks… With Hélène S.

11 Mar , 2015  

Collage Méduse jelly shoes Jumpy boots by Hélène S.

 

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

Her taste in fashion is certainly evident: ‘So Shoes’ – the story of French shoes, by Frédérique Veysset et Isabelle Thomas, is a book that she currently, can’t put down. She has an artistic spirit about her: she makes us dream about our Jumpy boots playing in the snow! She’s sharp, she’s everywhere at one time and she has an eye for spotting Méduse outside of our playground.

PicMonkey Collage So Shoes

And you know us, we’re always keen to highlight those with the Méduse spirit! So when we conjured up the theme of ‘Méduse Through The Ages’, it seemed obvious to contact Hélène (yes, the girl we’ve just been raving about!), a true Méduse fan. The lady is a real Frenchie, she’s lived with Méduse since her childhood and we can’t be any happier about Hélène sharing her memories with us!

10899114_977131108967898_408524618_n

What does Méduse mean to you? How have you grown up with Méduse? (We don’t mean the size!)

The practicality, the playfulness, the style and the French quality.

Méduse also signifies comfort for the rainy journeys to the beach. I’m a big fan of my Zebra Jumpy boots, even if it’s not raining!

Obviously my brothers, cousins and I have grown up with Méduse. We each had our own pair at my grandparents’ holiday home in Pouliguen (close to La Baule) and we spent our days in the rocky coves, on the boat. I couldn’t live without my little plastic shoes. (I even found some photos of my brother and I!)

unnamed (6)

Are you more of a jelly daydreamer OR a Jumpy living in the moment kind of person?

I would say, I’m 85% a dynamic Jumpy and 15% jelly daydreamer. Life is short and sweet and I like to make the most of it.

 

You get the opportunity to travel through time! Which century would you like to live in?

I would say, the 1930’s! Women were so elegant!

 

One reason you would pick this décade ?

For several different reasons. You could wear extravagant, elegant and luxurious evening-wear, designed by Coco Chanel.

But it was also the start of annual paid leave, and casual wear started to appear on the scene – hello lovely petite shorts!

Finally, since the 1930’s, the designers started using stones, studs and sequins on their creations, something which I am very fond of – just ask my friends!

 

RANDOM QUESTION! It’s 1946 – the year Méduse was born. If you were dancing to music in this era, would it be classical? Jazz? Or something else?

Probably American Jazz, from right after the war.

 

Imagine 1946. What would you wear with your jellies ?

I would opt for a lovely Capeline hat or a ribbon in my hair, a polka dot dress and a flared belted dress, and of course my SUN jelly sandals with well tanned pins!

 

And there you have a talk on vintage fashion! What are your fashion tips if you were to wear Méduse in 1946? Everyone has their own take! We are truly touched by Hélène sharing her memories and snapshots from her childhood. You can discover Hélène’s world on her Instagram here!

We wish you many more memories with Méduse!

We then flew waaaaaaaaay over to sunny Singapore and spoke to blogger, jelly-lover and #GetJumpy master, Darishini T. She has such a way with words and we’re sure she’s gonna be a star to watch out for! Just take a look at this haiku, she created for Méduse!
