Bishop Collective, New Luxury Store Open on Lower East Side


Leaping from an online to omnichannel retailer, Bishop Collective opened the first permanent storefront last week at 143 Ludlow Street, New York.The Bishop Collective is an online retailer of 100-percent ethically sourced and American-made women’s apparel, accessories, and home décor. Located between Stanton and Rivington Streets, the store has 700 square feet of clean and modern-minimalist aesthetics, perfectly aligning with the five-year-old e-tailer’s digital retail experience. Inspired and encouraged by its successful Holiday 2017 pop-up shop, the retailer thrives on bringing more first-hand physical “Bishop” experience to its local customers. As Mai Vu, Co-Founder of Bishop Collective, says, “Our first permanent retail location is allowing our local fans and new shoppers alike to discover not only our philosophy but also our products in a controlled, curated environment.”

This luxury retailer, offering ethically sourced, American-manufactured products, values quality over quantity, and is dedicated to bringing a greater purpose to fashion, art, and lifestyle. With the opening of the LES shop, Bishop Collective continues to surprise the consumers with its cause-based, slow-fashion ethos. Dimitri Koumbis, Bishop Collective Co-Founder, notes, “With New York City being the global destination that it is, the Bishop Collective retail store will allow an entirely new audience to discover our message. As they return home, they will take our story with them.”
Bishop Collective’s featured brands hail from Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles, to the tri-state area including Bridgeport, CT, New York City, and North Carolina with products that combine fashion, art, and lifestyle, with prices ranging from $36 to $500. The store is currently housing its summer collection, and fall offerings will hit the floor mid-August.
