Local headwear label Fallen Broken Street brings the time-honoured art of millinery into the present. Launched in 2011, the Byron Bay-based brand is the brainchild of David Frim and Justin Crawford – the pair combined their experience in the fields of fashion and photography with their desire to create accessories that are as timeless as they are unique.
Fallen Broken Street draws inspiration from the creative energy that underscores the heart of Byron Bay; individuals who are carefree, passionate and aren’t afraid to stand out. Coupled with a love of all things travel and art, the label has created an inimitable and instantly recognisable aesthetic that has garnered a cult-like following in just a few short years. Collaborations with the likes of Monster Children magazine and Sunday Somewhere have seen the label permeate the Australian fashion landscape and redefine traditional notions of the hat as essential, not optional, to personal style.
THE ICONIC’s carefully curated edit of Fallen Broken Street will bring an artisanal touch to any accessories collection. Classic hat silhouettes – think the fedora, the wide brim, the floppy – are rendered in premium Australian wool felt, cotton and paper straw, and trimmed with heat-pressed leather, feathers, or the brand’s signature button hardware. A palette of rich natural hues and perennial neutrals ensure that there’s a Fallen Broken Street silhouette to top off every look.
