Pilgrim opened its doors with one goal in mind. “I want to make women feel beautiful in a modern and inviting space,” says designer and store co-founder Richard Ives. As defined a pilgrim is one who embarks upon on a quest to find something sacred. Part boutique, part art gallery, Pilgrim is an exhibition of abstract paintings, art books, designer vintage apparel and accessories and Pilgrim’s own ready to wear collection. 

With an innate eye and admiration for vintage, Pilgrim offers an edited collection of designer’s work from the 50’s and 80’s to include Lanvin, Cacharel, YSL, and Ungaro. Jewelry and accessories are essential to the Pilgrim aesthetic. Pre-ban ivory bangles, sixties-inspired beaded necklaces and Bonnie Cashin designed Coach bags are found throughout the store. Vintage sunglasses offer customers a relevant look into seasons past with an assortment of designer frames from the 70’s and 80’s such as Courrèges, Oleg Cassini and Nina Ricci.

 Black-washed floors provide the perfect backdrop for the eclectic mix of 20th century abstract paintings, some of which were created by co-founder Brian Bennett, and decorative pieces on display that include Korean pottery from the 4th century. A selection of soy based candles created exclusively for Pilgrim reflect the mood of the collection and are often found burning around the store.  

Pilgrim is located at 70 Orchard Street in Manhattan’s Lower East Side neighborhood. You can also follow them on Facebook.
