Burkman Bros. Spring / Summer 11


Just before they debuted their SS11 collection at (capsule) Paris, we caught up with Canadian menswear darlings the Burkman Bros., who informed us that their latest wares were inspired by time spent in a Sri Lankan fishing village, resulting in a collection which they (awesomely) described as having a "Revenge of the Nerds: NERDS IN PARADISE" sensibility. Now, we get a sneak peek at some images from their SS11 lookbook. Although the model here looks anything but nerdy decked out in the casual layering and comfortable fabric for which the brothers have become known, the influence of their time abroad is reflected in the bold colors and prints throughout. From the looks of these images, it seems like the Burkman Bros.' title as the label with the Most Sought-After Shorts may very well continue into next summer with the textured, printed and lived-in offering on display here. More looks, plus some snapshots from the Burkman's inspiration board, after the jump. (Steve Dool)
