The Donavon Frankenreiter collection by Billabong is set for release this season. Based on the duel fantasy of music and surfing, the line includes a very personal take on boardshorts, t-shirts, pants, hats and accessories.
“The collection embraces my surfing philosophy and the musical side of my life and everything that surrounds it,” says Donavon. “It’s a reflection of my life over the last 15 years.”
Donavon has carved a successful career as a free-styling professional wave rider, the leading man in Fuel TV’s Drive-Thu series, a surfer known for eccentric board designs, flamboyant bottom turns and a charismatic personality that has made him a one name celebrity in the surfing world.
Not content to be constrained by beach culture alone, he has emerged in recent years as a budding musician whose songwriting, guitar prowess and grassroots following has now brought him to the verge of major stardom.
As both a surfer and a musician he has walked the fine line of a stylist with a distinctive flair for both 70’s retro chic and contemporary cool.
Pick up the collection in Billabong stores from late December.
