A creative retail space, V showcases a series of monthly thematic concepts, exhibited like art, but fit to wear. In the vintage clothing game for seven years, owner Kealan Sullivan has been collecting for years, putting aside her favorite pieces in anticipation of something big. After a hunt for the perfect space, V opened its doors under a month ago with a victory gardens theme, displaying clothing, furniture, found objects and antiques inspired by a garden party; next month the space will be completely revamped to fit another theme. With a slightly higher price tag than Sullivan’s other stores,69 Vintage and Buy the Pound, V still carries the perfect summer dress that you can bike in.
