So it makes sense that the girl with the key to avoiding that look is named Sharp.
Salt Lake City born and School of the Art Institute bred, Noelle Sharp is a third-generation knitter, weaver, and artist. Her collection, Aporta, is flush with lusciously thick knits and woven accessories inspired by nature and the Wild West.
Mile-long, chunky fringe scarves do triple-wraparound duty in deep purple and forest green; oversize braided cowls are keep-on-all-day toasty. Fasten soft organic bamboo and mohair orange, white, and gray bandana scarves with large vintage metal pins; wool beanies cover and slouch in all the right ways.
If you’ve got vintage fur lying around, Sharp can craft the scraps into elegant, custom-lined bandanas or hoodies.
Up next: sweaters, women’s/menswear, and historical costume-inspired designs.
Things are really taking shape.
