Here is my best explanation:

'crumble' is the definition.
('fall apart' can be a synonym of 'crumble')

'autumn a role' is the subsidiary indication.
'autumn' becomes 'fall' ('fall' can be a synonym of 'autumn').
'role' becomes 'part' ('part' can be a synonym of 'role').
'fall'+'a'+'part'='fallapart'

'gives' is the link.
