For autumn/winter’19, Magda Butrym, who is originally from Poland, decided to explore the richness of the Eastern European folklore.
« I grew up with a much romanticised idea of the folklore culture. There was almost an idyllic aura about it. It was visually opulent but the energy was quite raw, very sensual. » – says Magda. She continues that, « Pawel Pawlikowski evoked that spirit so beautifully and accurately in his movie “Cold War”. When I saw it, I thought that there had to be something in the air. I’m ready to find my own way of interpreting that ambiance .»
The collection features Masculine, voluminous jackets. The strong lines of oversized pants and sculpted dresses radiate confidence and comfort; whilst elaborate lace and embellished details bring in femininity and contrast.
Floral prints are revisited in deep reds, greens, violets, reminiscing of the vibrant prints of traditional folklore fashion. There is an assemblage of accessories: decorative jewellery, flower brooches, signature innovative “on and off “ shoe pins, and elaborate earrings. The timeless shoe classics are appear from thigh high, mid length perfect everyday boots to elegant Mary Janes and light wear crystal-covered party sandals.
