Magda Butrym’s SS18 collection strikes the balance between romantic femininity and masculine tailoring


A rising star and new big player on the market – Magda Butrym, presented her SS18 collection during the Paris Fashion Week. Today we got another chance to take an eye on it! If hers isn’t a name you recognize, it’s the time to put Polish designer on your radar: her pieces are crafted locally, and she becomes celebrities’ favorite.

The SS18 collection strikes the perfect balance between romantic femininity and masculine tailoring to create an original, fresh silhouette for the confident Magda Butrym woman.

With the SS18 collection, the designer continues her long-time study of femininity and fashion. Playing on wistful nostalgia for bygone eras, Magda brings to life the flamboyance craftsmanship and empowering stature of 18th-century fashion to the forefront of her new collection. Reinterpreting typical techniques of the old-school designs, Magda Butrym transforms the traditional to modern, whilst evoking the grandeur and drama of vintage aesthetics.

The brand’s signature famous floral prints created exclusively by Magda in mulberry, purples, rose pinks and tangerine oranges feature on silk dresses and asymmetric blouses with bishop sleeves and elongated filled cuffs. Blooming prints juxtaposed against micro dresses dots in opulent navy and red are splashed across simple, yet exaggerated silhouettes in flowing fabrics. The distinctive use of freshwater pearls further complements the Victoriana inspired collection.

Traditional Polish craftsmanship and hand-finished details sit at the heart of Magda Butrym’s collections. The handcrafted crochet mini dress with woven leather trims and billowy peasant sleeves is complemented with delicate lace gloves; cotton blouses and delicate silk dresses are overstated with eye-catching hand-woven embroidery.

Expanding upon her wildly admired accessories credentials, the SS18 accessories line sees a strong alignment with the brand DNR, with a focus on sophisticated, one-off jewelry with an edge, ranging from pearl drop earrings and bracelets to pearl necklaces and chokers finished with silk ribbon ties. Launching this season, the shoe collection is minimal and classic in design, yet elevated with off-piste eccentric details, transforming the shoes from day to eveningwear with a clip of pearl brooch, inspired by vintage images and portraits, Manga Butrym collaborated with artist Piotr Krzymowski to bestir the accessories line: reimaging Piotr’s canvases to unveil the designs.
