Portland may be well known for crunchy, organic bearded folks, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a contingency that just wants to go to a club and get down. For those so inclined, appearance and fashion sensibility is a key. Urban Edge in Nob Hill has a wide array of club styles, while also keeping a sharp eye on sustainability and transforming recyclables into must-have accessories.
After a three year stint in the Pearl District, the store has recently moved to Nob Hill’s 23rd Ave. Pieces are personally chosen by the store’s owner at trade shows. Designs from Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Montreal are brought together to reflect an edgy young sensibility. Shirts, jeans, and dresses line the well lit store and are perfect for daytime wear as well.
While the store’s current focus is more on men’s wear, the women’s collection is quickly expanding. Portland couples who enjoy shopping together are sure to find something for each of their sensibilities. A display case full of accessories rounds out the collection of messenger bags lining the shelves around the Nob Hill boutique.
A special line has been brought in from Brazil, reapropriating recyclable materials such as soda can tops into must-have accessories. Purses, vests, necklaces and even a dress are innovative and unique while still in line with local Portland environmental values. The dress made of soda can tops is surprisingly flattering, outlining each wearer’s figure in a way that fabric simply cannot.
With new imports on a regular basis, this Nob Hill boutique is one to keep an eye on!
