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

‘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!

Meduse - Samantha2

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 !

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

“I always loved wearing Méduses because we you can do anything with these shoes!”

She stands loud and proud from our beloved city of Nantes, and she snaps her Méduse footsteps with her adorable little dog – and y’know what? He’s jelly! In this interview, we walk through her favourite highlights of Nantes and her love for Méduse!

M: So tell us! Who are you, jelly lover?
E: So, who am I? I was born and bred in Nantes and I have lived there for 19 years, up until now, as I’m studying Art in Rennes’ University of Human Science. (Rennes 2.) So, I can’t say I am 100% “nantaise” anymore!

M: Challenge : Well,  we would love to see a picture of you dress up with the perfect outfit to wear with your black jellies!
Voilà !

Meduse - Elsa1

M: It’s pretty cool how we’re both from the Nantes region! Where do you like exploring in Nantes? And where would be the best place to hang out in your jellies?
E: In Nantes, the best places to hang out with my jellies are Trentemoult (even though it’s not really in Nantes) and the island of Nantes and the city centre of course! In fact, as soon as the sun is out, I go everywhere with my jet black jellies! They suit all kinds of places!

M: Your jet black jellies (we love them 😉 ) – how do you like to style them up?
E: I always loved wearing Méduses because we you can do anything with these shoes! You can dip in the water, stroll on the sand, walk in the countryside, garden, in the city – you can even wear them to a party!

 

Now you guys now know exactly where to go and walk in your Méduses in Nantes! Thanks Elsa for all your tips and tricks! We’ll definitely be following your footsteps! You too can follow Elsa on her Instagram to see the snapshots of her life!

And what about you? In which part of your city would you take your Méduse with you? Leave your comment below!

M: Do you prefer to live by day or by night? Why?
S: Day of course! I love exploring places and I think that’s best done in the day isn’t it? (haha)

Méduse Talks With… Boutique, Quattro Rish!

21 Apr , 2015  

0422 feature image quattrorish

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

Spotting our fellow Jumpy lovers from the UK, Quattro Rish, a buzzing boutique, share their tips and trends for spring / summer 15! They have an eye for simple, elegant fashion and they certainly keep our minds ticking with their fresh fashion predictions. Here we go!

You are 4 friends who launched your fashion boutique in the UK. How would you describe your current collections?

Yes we were four friends to begin with but now we are a husband and wife team as the other couple decided to move back to sunny Sicily just after shop was opened ! We have a wonderful team at QR who all help with styling and buying along with our very own blogger! As a rule of thought I sell what I love and what I would wear keeping it simple, understated and elegant with pieces which reflect my style. Our current collections are mostly Scandinavian brands such as Baum und Pferdgarden, Custommade and Twist & Tango which offer edgy, simple and understated designs. We also love casual French pieces like your fab wellies and American Vintage, and the fresh and clean English pieces from MiH Jeans.

Meduse - Quattrorish1

 

We love how there’s a touch of Frenchness with your style and photography! What accessories would you wear, to show off a nouveau French style for this season?

Ah , thank you, that’s a great compliment! The must have accessories would be a pair of round shaped sunnies with a fringe bag.  Both instantly update any outfit for some serious street style.

Meduse - Quattrorish2

 

If you could live life in one colour, what would it be and why?

It has to be blue, from navy to dark to light blue ! There is nothing more chic and elegant than a slightly loose blue masculine shirt in good cotton worn by women!  You just need to add heels or Jumpy wellies, et voilà !

Here’s a tricky question – if you had to choose, what is your favourite Jumpy boot and why?

Hmmm, I love them all but it would have to be the classic black with zebra print on the side. They are just super cool and stylish. They can be worn very smart or casual, I just love the design mix of the Chelsea boots / wellington boot / discreet animal print !

And now for a challenge! We know you love our Jumpy boots, so we challenge you to showcase and encapsulate these two things in one photo: Méduse + spring. Are you up for the challenge?

We love a challenge ! Challenge : Sun, fresh green, sky blue, denim shorts and Jumpy in Salmon / Pink !

Meduse - Quattrorish3

 

You said it! We think we’ll take you up on that Spring image 😉 sun, blue skies, cool denims and our beloved Jumpy boots! Thank you very much for speaking with us Quattro Rish, we really look forward to seeing your summer surprises in Méduse!

Explore their website here and stay tuned for their fashion finds of the day, on their Instagram here!

Au revoir for now!

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!

 

Meduse - SS15 catalogue

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

Méduse Talks… With Virginie Cappoen

27 Mar , 2015  

NIKITA

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

Since we spotted her artwork, we were dreaming about getting in touch with her… If you’re used to hanging out on our blog, you can’t have missed it – Virginie, is an exceptional artist, and she expresses her Méduse like a true artist, who is in her zone with a crayon or paint brush in hand.

A fan of our NIKITA, she told us a story about Méduse and she took us by the hand, through her playground. As she voices her words – everything comes to standstill.

VC - SUN Meduse VC - NIKITA GREEN Meduse

Where does your inspiration come from?
I try to grab inspiration from a lot of things. It could be an object, an image, an exhibition or a film! Childhood is an endless source of inspiration. Indeed, my favourite artists have a very childish style to them. It’s impossible to mention them all, but among them you can find Steinberg, Picasso, Twombly, Basquiat, Sottsass, Cocteau… I like art to be spontaneous, refined, clumsy, funny and not pretentious. And generally, I like fantasy, humour, romanticism and poetry!
Your work is defined through particular use of colours. How do you decide on the use of certain colours? Is it impulsive or do you think about it beforehand?
 
Adding colour within art is not an easy step. From time to time you can have unexpected outcomes, but I like to try a lot of different techniques: acrylic, watercolours, felt-tip pens, colouring pencils and pastels – which I like the most!
VC - NIKITA GREEN1 Meduse
We love your work on Méduse – of course 😉 ! How does the Méduse world inspire you?
I am a total fan of Méduse! I like the quirky side and the playfulness. Of course it reminds me of my childhood. They are really comfortable and you can have all the colours! I almost only wear them in the summer! I can’t live without them!
VC - NIKITA RED Meduse
If you had play-doh in your hands right now, what would you do with it?
I would try to create a Méduse collection!
What is your favourite Instagram filter for posting your picture?
All these filters are really cool, but I barely use them! I prefer to use no filter.
We have a challenge for you ! You drew Nikita and Sun Meduse. Could you make a drawing of Jumpy boots ?
BOOM !
VC - Jumpy RED Meduse VC - JUMPY spot Meduse
VC - JUMPY quirky Meduse VC - JUMPY b&W MEduse
And there you have it! Virginie is on Instagram, she’s a total inspiration for anyone who wants to get stuck in and get creative! Our Méduse inspire her – and surprise surprise – we are in love with her work.
Thanks Virginie! X
