If you're a city gal looking for a brand new vintage store, you'll probably come across 'Barlow' sometime soon. Ex-rock star Jana Janklow recently opened up this one-of-a-kind boutique in New York City, developing a vintage collection over a period of years. Each year she chooses a girl and creates a world for her with eatery, smells, sounds and visuals.

She develops a fully formed character with a deep understanding of what she gives as gifts and where she vacations. From this she creates the inspiration for an entire collection with everything from clothing to accessories that perfectly suits the season's character.

So not only does this store feature rare vintage items, they're customized to the interests of the curator and fully formed around a balanced thought process.
