Fashion has always had a penchant for revisiting trends from the past. In particular, the early 00s and 70s have been the subject of fashion’s ongoing fascination for the longest while. In their latest Summer/Spring 2023 Collection, Magda Butrym presents a floral wonderland that marries the two time periods. The designer always had a unique take on femininity, combining traditional artisanship with modernity to create a distinctive identity – one that is romantic and empowering.

Magda Butrym’s SS23 Collection is a celebration of her Polish heritage and is reflected through all her pieces, especially with the handwoven tops made by traditional crochet techniques. With a palette of pastels, neutrals, and bright hues, the collection offers a youthful, fun aesthetic with an elevated twist.

The footwear collection for SS23 takes us back to the 70s with a focus on platform shoes and floral patterns. The brand’s best-selling flower sandal returns in denim, lilac, cream, black, and nude variations with a single flower at the front. The handbag collection welcomes the Magda Bag to its line-up, a floral sculptural form that perfectly embodies the brand’s romantic aesthetic.

Whether it’s a dinner by the beach or a sunset party, the Magda Butrym SS23 collection is the chicest companion.
