In terms of a characteristic style, the pieces in the collection are solid, structured, with a fluid air of femininity. There is a lot of inspiration from menswear, but Butrym manages to avoid too literal an interpretation of the trend and makes it clear that she is designing for women who enjoy putting a slight twist on tradition. Hers is a very Parisian approach to the craft, with some fashion writers comparing her line to the legendary French label Celine or the YSL of the 1960s. She herself cites Halston of the 1970s as a major inspiration. The quality of the textiles she chooses and the painstaking attention to the details of craftsmanship are apparent in every piece, from sumptuous wool coats to whimsically asymmetrical shirtdresses, lavishly draped skirts and racy crocheted cocktail dresses. An unexpected accent, such as an ultra-tailored waist on a boxy military ensemble or an extra-long swathe of fabric on the skirt of a subtly leopard-patterned silk dress, are trademarks of a style that takes practical ready-to-wear and gives it a tongue-in-cheek spin.
