5X5

Our spring project and everything your feed needs!

We’ve sent some great holiday gifts to the best style bloggers you haven’t heard about yet. We chose the first one ourselves, and she chose the next one, who chose the next one, and so on—five MeDusa bags found a home with five inspiring women.

The 5x5 Project is intended to discover fresh and intriguing writers, to renew our Instagram feed and give a voice to intelligent and funny women with interesting aesthetic outlooks. What Instagram does best is offer a momentary escape to faraway, beautiful places. We decided to find new bloggers, photographers, stylists, and Instagram personas we’d never heard about and let them take us someplace new. The rules were simple: five bags, five days, five photos.

Each writer chose who to deliver a gift to, and this next person took the lead. Each of them chose their own concept, be it a series or standalone photos, and had a chance to talk about herself and her unique point of view. We relinquished all control over how our bags were presented. It was totally up to them.

Each blogger was asked the same five questions:

1. What’s the first thing you do in the morning?

2. What’s the last video that made you click “play”?

3. Coffee or beer?

4. What’s the last account you started following on Instagram?

5. What holiday gift would you like to receive?

The first blogger, chosen by us, is Maria Vernik:

https://www.instagram.com/scorttariusstyle/

http://scorttarius-style.blogspot.co.il/

“Umm… I’m twenty-nine years old. I live in Haifa but work in Tel Aviv at the Taiwanese Embassy (I work at the culture department and can even chat in Chinese).
I love photography, fashion, and Scandinavian design and am mildly obsessed with the colors white, gray, and black, as is evident in my blog and Instagram account (even my two cats are those colors, but that was just a happy accident).”

 

1. What’s the first thing you do in the morning?

I have to admit, the first thing I do in the morning is turn off the alarm clock and check my Instagram feed.


2. What’s the last video that made you click “play”?

Hard to say… I’m addicted to YouTube so I must have clicked on one of the videos there. At the moment I can only recall the amazing clips from Alexa Chung’s “The Future of Fashion” on the British Vogue channel. Highly recommended!

3. Coffee or beer? Coffee, obviously!

4. What’s the last account you started following on Instagram? @tlvstreet—amazing street fashion photography from all over the world by Israeli photographer Asaf Liberfrund.

5. What holiday gift would you like to receive?

I wouldn’t say no to a vacation in New York City. Or maybe in the Maldives…

Maria is an amazing and accurate voice, that is a true pleasure to follow, we love her work and we love her pictures for this project that tells her day routine with her Paris bag. now you can follow too! 

Maria chose  Karen Tal:

“I’m Karen Tal, twenty-four years old. By day I study Behavioral Science and work two jobs. By night, I’m a fashion blogger. My passions are traveling around the world, eating junk food, and watching the Kardashians to give my brain a break from the madness that is my life. I’ve been in a relationship for six and a half years. We recently moved to
Tel Aviv and now I take a lot more walks (preparing my body for the summer).”

1. What’s the first thing you do in the morning?

I’m one of those people who set the alarm for 45 minutes before I actually need to wake up, hit the snooze button, spend a little time on my phone and then only get out of bed ten minutes before I have to leave the house.

2. What’s the last video that made you click “play”?

I listen to the Tal and Aviad morning radio show through their app. I’m their number one fan.

3. Coffee or beer? Coffee, coffee, coffee!

5. What holiday gift would you like to receive?

1. What’s the first thing you do in the morning?

I admit, the first thing I do is check my Instagram… it helps me wake up, get out of bed, and start my day.

2. What’s the last video that made you click “play”?

Nathan Goshen’s new song, “This is Ours.”

3. Coffee or beer?

Beer, naturally… I might be ruining my image, but I don’t drink coffee at all. I just don’t like it.

4. What’s the last account you started following on Instagram? @thefashionmedley

5. What holiday gift would you like to receive?

A vacation in Zanzibar. Right now. Thank you!

Moran chose Liat Shpiegel:

https://www.instagram.com/liatzsh/

http://liatshpiegel.wix.com/dresstoimpress

“My name is Liat, from Tel Aviv, twenty-six years old. I’ve always loved fashion and photography, and this year I decided to invest in this love and live it to the fullest! There’s always room for progress and improvement. In the meantime, I’m enjoying every moment of it!”

MeDusa 6th Birthday!

MeDusaxShiranka

The MeDusa brand is celebrating its sixth birthday—six years of Israeli and international creation. Since its establishment in 2009, when the designers presented their classic line, the brand has developed with a wide variety of collections all maintaining the brand’s unique character while stretching the boundaries of its signature plastic material, growing the brand’s fame and popularity.

The plastic, as well as the brand’s other recycled, 100% vegan materials, will always remain at the foundation of MeDusa’s collections, but different inspirations and techniques have allowed the designers to expand their range and offer a new experience with each additional line.

The latest and fifth collection was launched a few months ago. It’s called Reflection and deals with three-dimensional forms and with each bag as our own private treasure chest. 

As is its annual tradition, MeDusa will introduce a special, limited edition capsule collection in honor of its birthday. This collection is a unique product which is not part of the brand’s commercial line. As such, it reserves the right to be more artistically wild, allowing the designers the opportunity to create some extraordinary products, revealing a different facet of the MeDusa style.

This year, the designers are joined by stylist Shiran Kadar Miller for a stunning, one-time collaboration, inspired by the animal world, fantasy, and imagination. The work was done in a collaborative process, creating a joint fantasy shared by MeDusa’s and Shiran’s worlds of content and forming them into the shapes of bags. The new products present a rich, imaginary universe filled with humor and personalizing each and every item, making it relatable.

The birthday line bags are a special version of the Billy bags—small clutches from the brand’s previous collection. They will be featured in a special, limited edition, and will be launched at a special birthday celebration held at the MeDusa studio, on 110 Dizengoff Street, on January 29th, 2016, between 10 a.m. and 4 a.m. The event will feature special offers and gifts. All details can be found on MeDusa’s Facebook page and on its newly launched Hebrew website.

Reflections 2016

In the creation of our new line, Reflections, our starting point was the notion of memory. What is a memory? What experiences are memorable? What sense has the strongest connection to the concept of memory?

We examined the notion through conversations with friends and family about their earliest memories. From the very beginning we set our sights on transforming a shapeless, nebulous, and emotional concept into a tangible, three-dimensional product.

Our research led us to the conclusion that a memory is the essence of an experience, the basis around which each of our individual stories are built. The most primal experiences are etched within us forever as memories.

Seeking a corporeal embodiment of this abstract notion, we turned to basic shapes, which form the basis for the entire collection. We created boxes from these simple shapes, which each woman can fill with her own memories. The box motif became the guideline for the new collection, leading our path and recurring in the design of each new item.

 

To mimic a primal experience, we cleaned the new models from all ornamentations and even of our signature plastic embossments. What remained was clean geometrical shapes with varying angular cuts, imbuing each purse with its own personality, either emphasizing or breaking through the familiar form.

The new bags are made only of plastic, without any faux-leather materials, and their three-dimensional design is performed without any external aid, entirely out of the plastic embossing itself. Our familiar textures stepped aside to allow a new focus on form, and the new texture is the bag itself, without any patterns. Though these new items are much simpler, they are warm and personal, and extremely pleasant to hold.

 

The addition of golden metal in some of the models provides the bags with a high-end, elegant look, a more adult appearance that is also a testament to the evolvement of the designers’ personal lives as women. The metal gives an elegant emphasis to the geometrical breaks—the corners and angles created in the plastic through embossing.

The new collection currently contains four new models, all shoulder-bags and purses, in five colors, including a new one—off-white.

MeDusa X Belle&Sue capsule collection

Belle & Sue is a multiple-time winner of the Israeli Best Online Shop award. It offers terrific imported brands such as Cheap Monday, Clashist, Mara Hoffman, Soludos, and Jeffrey Campbell, among many others.
Recently, Belle & Sue has also opened a physical shop on one of the main drags of Tel Aviv, Israel’s fashion capital.  The shop embodies Belle & Sue’s signature content and offers its high quality brands. 

Naturally, we were very excited when a few months ago Belle & Sue asked us to design a unique capsule collection. Working together was amazing. It was clear to us who our client was and what the items needed to be:
special, edgy, with a rough, rock-and-roll twist.

We decided to design a series combining handmade work with our
signature plastic, the type of design we use for our premium collection, with a bolder look. 

The addition of silver studs, attached to the plastic by hand, provides this limited edition with its unique look.

The collection includes four models, three of which are variations on existing models of ours, with add-ons and modifications. The fourth is the cherry on top, a new model from our new 2016 collection, due next September.


Combining metal into our existing models was a way of connecting our Belle & Sue line with our up-and-coming 2016 collection. The new model, the rectangular clutch, revealed here for the first time, also contains metal and is a perfect blend of rough and edgy with innovative and colorful.


We’re delighted at this opportunity to design a unique line, create beautiful bags, and express ideas that had yet to find their place in MeDusa’s previous collections.
