If good things come in small packages, then Pilgrim is no exception. This pint-size boutique, with its ethereal bohemian vibe, carries a mix of clothing from the 1950s through the 1990s—including a stunning selection of Givenchy, Pierre Cardin, Lanvin and Celine pieces, as well as a deep archive of coveted items from Japanese designers like Junya Watanabe and Rei Kawakubo. But the stock of vintage and recent Chanel purses and accessories is one of the shop's biggest draws. (It's all authentic and gently used, so expect a hefty price tag.) The house line, designed by owners Richard Ives and Brian Bennett, reflects the store's '60s aesthetic and includes silk and cotton dresses and beach cover-ups.
