Flores

Flower headdresses have been woven into the social and dress tradition of cultures throughout history and across the world. From a symbol of glory, power and eternity to love and divinity, with its roots in agrarian societies, wearing leaves and flowers on your head, is a tradition that has been symbolically used for ceremonies and festive occasions as far as the ancient classical world. From the Greek olive wreath, to the Polynesian lei, the Ukrainian vinok, each version holds its unique aesthetic and ritual, with often the type of flowers used holding a particular meaning or significance in the country’s cultural and natural landscape. Magnetic Midnight’s decorative reinterpretation of the iconic flower crown holds true to the brand’s own aesthetic and essence as a festive accessory to any attire. Using iraca palm leaf, pompoms, mirrors, beads and other materials, it draws inspiration from the designer’s native Colombia whist simultaneously exploring the flower motif in other cultures, namely Mexico, India and Russia.
