Magnetic Midnight is the time of day when the South magnetic pole or the North magnetic pole align between the sun and a person on the earth’s surface. This is the best time for observing auroras and it also happens to be the namesake of Lucia Echavarria’s brand of bijoux de têtes, jewelry for the head. The Paris born, New York based, Colombian designer has been designing her spectacular headpieces since 2015. Each piece is handmade in Colombia with raffia, folk charms, jewels and of course, my personal favorite: pom poms. This season, the collection was inspired by a recent trip to Oaxaca, where Lucia was compelled to incorporate the bright colors from Mexico’s Day of the Dead and little tin milagros into one of kind pieces. Goodbye flower crowns, hello Magnetic Midnight . . .
