Ben and Doug Burkman of Burkman Bros., just named as one of the 12 designers selected for CFDA’s Fashion Incubator program, present a behind-the-scenes video for their label’s Spring/Summer 2012 lookbook. The guys describe the collection as having a “Polynesia-meets-America vibe,” inspired by a trip to Hawaii for a bit of sun and R and R. The surf-centric casual duds feature vivid florals and unique batik prints, complemented with accessories including necklaces, bracelets and patterned belts. The silhouettes are relaxed and slouchy, while the attitude is cool and laid back. Most styles are available in stores now.
