There are a couple of things you're missing. Here is the fix:

import wx

# First of all, I'd recommend you to pass False as
# the 'redirect' parameter, so that any errors appear
# on the console
app = wx.App(redirect=False)

win = wx.Frame(None, title="Simple editor")
loadButton = wx.Button(win, label='Open')
saveButton = wx.Button(win, label='Save')

# Now you need to set the frame as the top-level
# window

app.SetTopWindow(frame)

# In the line
#
#  win.Show
#
# Python recognizes this as a method, but you're
# not calling it, so its value is discarded. It's
# a meaningless, albeit legal statement.

win.Show()

# Now, let the fun begin
app.MainLoop()

# Sebastian
