East Village, Lower East Side & Soho

7. Pilgrim Vintage

A reader steered us in the direction of Pilgrim Vintage, a small shop located at 70 Orchard Street, filled with high-end designer clothing. The owner, who spent several years as a stylist and fashion director for Bloomingdale’s, walked us through rows of Chanel suits and bags, and racks of Japanese designers like Yohji Yamamoto and Issey Miyake. Every inch of the shop, filled with luxury brands, shoes, jewelry, and lots of handbags. Closed on Mondays.
