Burkman Bros Get to Know

1. What is the inspiration behind Burkman Brothers?

Our love of travel bears a strong influence in the Burkman Bros collection. Each season we travel to a new and different destination in the world which serves as inspiration for the collection.  We love to really get into the heart of a place, to find out what makes a destination special.  We often seek out vintage and local textiles, as we incorporate these various prints and fabric treatments into our collection.  Burkman Bros fuses a casual American sensibility with a well-traveled point of view.  Our bold prints, original bespoke fabrics and classic menswear essentials emphasize originality, style, comfort and ease. 

2. How involved are you guys in the creative process?

We are wholeheartedly involved.  The brand would not exist if we were not.

3. What do you see for the future of Burkman Brothers?

Our brand is lifestyle-driven.  For example, we’d love to develop an amazing accessories collection – bags, sunglasses, footwear etc…

4. We hear that you guys are world travelers. What is your favorite place to go, and what inspired you there?

We just returned from Bangkok.  We love Bangkok because it is a bustling city that is a bold mix of the exotic and the familiar, the old and the new, the discovered and the yet-to-be found.  Bangkok has all of the elements that made for a remarkable inspiration trip.

Catch This Now: Fall 2012 Burkman Bros

Knit Cap & Scarf Unfortunately for the ladies, we will soon be covering up our tanned abs and turning in the board shorts for jeans and button-downs. On the plus side, Burkman Bros came out with their Fall 2012 collection. Iceland was their source of inspiration, as they stopped at the remote island to stall their return to New York for a tad bit longer. The layered, laid back confidence of this collection comes directly from the Icelanders. If these flannels, earth tones and Nordic-inspired patterns don’t get you to put your clothes on, then I don’t know what will.

Sweater & Check ShirtFlannel ShirtPair flannel button-down shirts with denim brands like J Brand, Citizens of Humanity or 7 For All Mankind. Also, with Fall quickly approaching (can anyone make the time slow down, by the way?) try throwing on a lightweight Canada Goose Lodge Vest. Its perfect for in between weather.

J. Mills & Co. duffel with some tanks and Fred Perry polos and you’re ready for a rockin’ beach weekend.

Havaianas Highraff Graffiti Flip Flop Sao Paulo

With a strong graphic design influence, Highraff blends graffiti, illustration, cartoon language and psychedelic art, which results in organic forms with striking color combinations. His inspirations mainly come from natural forms such as the sun, moon, stars and plants.

Havaianas Speto Graffiti Flip-Flop Brazil Sao Paulo

Born in São Paulo, Speto is one of the artists responsible for the originality of Brazilian graffiti. He developed a unique style that carries hip hop elements and a strong influence of woodcut.

Havaianas Zezao Graffiti Flip-Flop Brazil

Zezão became famous for expressing his art in the sewer galleries in the city of São Paulo. It was a way of bringing color and life to forgotten places.  During his career, he developed two types of art: the first remits to abstract calligraphy; the second employs abstract and colorful drawings.

BURKMAN BROS – SPRING-SUMMER 2012

BURKMAN BROS TANKS

We coined the term WEAR WORLDWIDE here as Doug & Ben are always inspired by their travels.  This season is no different and the locale this time is the island of Kaua’i.  We say ALOHA and the bros have brought us a huge variety of tanks in colors and stripes, all cut to show off the results of your tropical rock climbing or simply hours in the gym.  Pair those tanks with original jacquard, striped and printed shorts and arm yourself with a handful of bracelets and you’re ready for the tropics, the Hudson river, the Hamptons or the Santa Monica pier.
