Last night the New York design community gathered at experimental design gallery space bondtoo to celebrate the launch of Sight Unseen's new online accessories shop, "dedicated to the sale of handmade and one-of-a-kind wearable objects by artists and designers." Even if you can't afford Rafael de Cardenas' new line of furniture, Bec Brittain's lighting fixtures, or Iacoli and McAllister's powder-coated steel designs, their special accessories for Sight Unseen curators Monica Khemsurov and Jill Singer are a wearable, eye-catching alternative.

We especially love Los Angeles-based furniture designer Tanya Aguiñiga's scupltural cotton rope necklaces that incorporate leather offcuts and reclaimed copper tubing and British designer Simone Brewster's geometric copper and wood, leather pendants. Browse for pieces from designers, Renata Abbade, Confetti System, Jim Drain, Chen Chen and Kai Williams, Fredericks & Mae, Philippe Malouin, Kiel Mead, Silva/Bradshaw, Study O Portable and more! Each piece is handmade and many are one-of-a-kind collectibles, often the designer's first foray into wearable accessories. We look forward to seeing what might come from future collaborations for Sight Unseen shop.
