After years of experience in the industry, Magda Butrym founded the brand under her own name in 2014. To this day, it remains true to its original premise of combining modern fashion design with traditional craftsmanship. The designer often plays with references to vintage fashion (echoes of the 70s and 80s constantly appear in her collections) and surprisingly combines them with current trends.

What consistently impresses is that, Magda Butrym cares about traditions and explores old techniques, supporting local artisans. This is especially reflected in the creation of crocheted creations or sheepskin masterpieces. He is inspired by Polish folklore, but never in a too literal way.

However, what drives her fashion work is her daily observation of the women around her, especially her observation of what they like to wear and how they like to wear it.

Power Dressing – can a cocktail dress add power?

Can a mini dress add strength? In Butrym’s release, by all means. The Polish designer has made a name for herself with her recognizable, party-ready creations that have a distinct and ruthlessly feminine appeal. They are seductive and sensual, but at the same time have something extremely charismatic about them. This is a new form of “power dressing” that exudes determination, but is not opposed to celebrating femininity. No wonder Butrym’s clothes are so popularly chosen by women around the world for important occasions.

The evening closet offered by Butrym is one of a kind. Highlights of the latest collections include off-shoulder necklines and the return of appliques with huge flowers, which appear on blazers with voluminous shoulders or on skirts made of high-quality denim. At the premiere of the film “Infinite Storm” in New York, Polish director Malgorzata Szumowska and actress Naomi Watts (who played the lead role in Szumowska’s feature-length work) showed up in sisterly, monochromatic looks by Butrym.

Watts wowed with a silk shirt with a huge flower on the shoulder, while Szumowska inflicted chicness with a classic combination of a men’s jacket and loose pants. Both artists demonstrated the aforementioned “power dressing,” looking not only ultra-chic, but like real successful women, proud of their joint project. Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner was seen in an over-size black leather designer coat, nonchalantly thrown over a white mini dress. The result? Bravo. Just like the style offered to women by Butrym.

The bestselling singer and newlywed mom matched the look with a blood-colored vintage handbag from Gucci and minimalist stilettos. She looked sexy and simply “effortless.”

This is not the first time this year that music stars have fallen in love with the Polish brand. Olivia Rodrigo, who won the hearts of the younger generation with her album Sour, wore Butrym’s artisanal masterpiece last summer: a sensual ankle-length corset dress made from hundreds of hand-woven leather thongs. It’s worth mentioning that Butrym’s innovative approach to leather was loved by Kim Kardashian back in 2015, when she became one of the first foreign celebrities to wear the polka-dotted pieces, including pencil skirts made using a similar technique. Of course, the dress in which Rodrigo appeared sold out in an instant.

Lorde, another client of stylist Karla Welch, At one of the concerts of her “Solar Power” tour, she wore a satin cream suit with a Butrym label.
