Méduse Talks… With Marion

26 Aug , 2015  

Marion Claviere

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

I see Méduse as an extension of French traditions and the evolution of an emblematic shoe’

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!

Meduse jumpy salmon

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!

Meduse sun black

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.

Sun black and bag

 

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!

saldano bronze leopard fuschia

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!

The Jelly Lesson: Accessorising your Feet

20 Aug , 2015  

01 set feature 34

Your weekly jelly lesson, from us to you.

Jelly Step 1: Own those toes!
It’s time to glam up with toe rings: accessorize with some subtle
silver bands like these from Jewellery Box,
or if you’re feeling fancier, go for diamante gems.
Wear under Argent JAVANA to create a big wow in one small step!

lesson 1

Jelly Step 2: Sock’s Up!
Why not pair your NIKITA heeled jellies with your favourite frilly socks,
such as this 
gorgeous ASOS pair? Knee-high or ankle height –
how will you work them with your style?

lesson 2

Jelly Step 3: All for Anklets!
Anklets are the cutest 
way of dressing up while dressing down.
Delicate chains, like this one from Agathafun charms, and little pops of colour:
that’s what they are all about. Wear with Bronze SALSA jellies to show off that jewel shine!

lesson 3

Jelly Step 4: A pop of pedicure!
Time to go 
wild with a little nail illustration and brightness,
and those Nacre CAPRI jellies will let that colour shine through!
Will you paint your toes red to match your lipstick, using this hot OPI colour?
Go for green polish spots to match your skirt? Or just the classic
French manicure for your feet? Have some fun!

lesson 4

Jelly Step 5: Back to basics!
Your feet carry you
through your world – why not celebrate them as they are?
Take a moment to dress down, embrace the day
with nothing but your fave pair of Meduse classic SUN jellies,
from Noir to Bonbon. Sometimes less can truly be more!

lesson 5

However you decide to dress up your feet, use Meduse as your starting point to define your look! Be it jewels, socks or polish – whatever it is, have fun, express your style and don’t be afraid to go accessory crazy. We’re all about being adventurous whatever it may be – why not follow our lead? :)

Have fun with Méduse!

13 Aug , 2015  

rio jutam

Your weekly jelly lesson, from us to you.

Jelly step 1: Take time to LAUGH. It’s summer,
which means seriousness is cast away with the clouds.
And what better footwear is there to have a giggle
in the sun with, than well, our SUN sandals? Pick Paille to match the rays!

sun

Jelly step 2: Start saying YES. Yes, you’re not working late,
and you will get some ice cream instead. Yes, you will take
more time to hang out with friends. Yes, you think that the
perfect pair of shoes to say ‘yes’ in is Vert d’eau JUTAM.

jutam vert d'eau
Jelly step 3: Remember to have FUN. Swap work
for silliness and make room for some excitement,
be it going out or staying in. Let your feet match
the fun by wearing a pair of Groseille SALSADA!

saldano

Jelly step 4: Be ADVENTUROUS. Nothing says
adventure more than Gris/Bleu RIO: be ready
to explore and discover, and be brave enough to
take the leap into the unknown.

rio gris bleu

Jelly step 5: EMBRACE LIFE. Be ready for the
day ahead, enjoy change and look forward
to the future: the classic Vieux rose/Crêpe JUMPY
boot will be with you every step of the way!

Where are you planning to go with your pair of Méduse? We’re off to get some of that ice cream ASAP to enjoy the hot weather while it lasts! Don’t forget to have a bit of fun – wearing Méduse is your little reminder that there’s always time to enjoy every day!

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!

11830714_10207089698899049_1026728182_n

 

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.

11805734_10207043511064382_1834051141_n

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!

10153025_1069172606445796_1793762897388292444_n

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!

11815993_10207089698539040_2035598940_n

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!

Méduse lover Amalia!

15 Jul , 2015  

set feature image blogger2

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

“We used to wear the Méduse shoes when we were young… and we still wear them today!”

You guys know it – it puts a great big smile on our face when we hear from jelly lovers around the world. And now? We couldn’t be more chuffed with this little star who popped along for a sweet chat. Let us introduce Amalia – the hero, the creator behind the Facebook group #LoveMyMeduses. Make way!
amalia photo contest

 

M – Tell us: how did you come up with the idea of creating a group for Méduse-lovers?

A – I am in charge of a boutique shop for the #TEXTO brand, and we currently sell Méduse jelly shoes. My of-the-wall personality and a shred of nostalgia made me get back to the Méduse basics, in a modern and feminine way! For the story, I created the #LoveMyMeduses fan club right after a hen party with my friends. I brought a pair of jelly shoes with me in my suitcase for this special occasion. All the girls literally fell in love with my Méduse outfits. A few days later, the bride-to-be posted a message on my Facebook wall, telling me she had bought the same shoes, then a second girl did the same, then a third… After that, I simply commented “what if we create a fan club?”. #LoveMyMeduses was born.

amalia wedding NEWjpg

 

M – How would you best describe the group?

A – #LoveMyMeduses is made for all the nostalgic people willing to take a leap back to their childhood – which really feels good from time to time ;-). We used to wear the Méduse shoes when we were young… and we still wear them today!  Growing up with my Méduse shoes, and wearing them again this summer, makes me super happy. Of course, you guys are all welcome to the facebook group!

 

amalia lovemymeduses

 

M – What are your best memories with Méduse?

A – I have some good memories with #Meduse. My first go back to my childhood, at our country house, during the summer holidays. We used to go to the nearby river, which we intimately called the “La Vanne à patauger nos petons” (the pond). I was with my grandmother and sister, and we were splashing around in the water with our hats and Méduse shoes on, to protect ourselves from the sun and the rocks. I remember eating our favorite LU cookies – the two biscuits with a delicious layer of chocolate in the middle. To be honest – these holidays were my sweetest childhood memories – simple, comforting…

M – Challenge! You know that we love fashion 😉 ! What is the best Méduse outfit to match with  your style?

A – Here’s a picture of me… 25 years later, on the same riverside, wearing my Méduse shoes:

 

amalia style NEW

 

A – I hope I managed to meet your expectations! Thank you #Meduse for being present in our lives. I am excited to see your next collection. You’ve definitely got a fan !! 😉

M – You Amalia, is what we call a stylish, super, SUPERFAN. Thank you very much for speaking to us and sharing your stories from the past to present. We hope you have many more moments with your Méduses in the future!

 

If you want to join her jelly-loving crew – join #LoveMyMeduses here!

Until next time folks!
