A Digital Design Fair

Sight Unseen has launched Offsite Online, the virtual iteration of its acclaimed design fair. On Instagram, the magazine will feature four weeks of daily in-depth live events at 2 p.m. (which can also be watched on their page afterward). Elsewhere, their website is exhibiting a curated presentation of new furniture and objects by 57 designers and brands. “Guests” can also shop the fair on 1stdibs.

Quarantine Clothes

The sustainable fashion brand Collina Strada has collaborated with Charlie Engman and wig artist Tomihiro Kono on a capsule collection of “clothes to wear at home, clothes that make you smile, and masks that you won’t want to live without.” The items are available at an online auction through May 25 with 100 percent of proceeds going to charities including No Kid Hungry, a Navajo relief fund, Dead Man’s White Clothes, HIP Give, and the Queens Centers for Progress.

And Quarantine Blankets

Greenpoint boutiques Wolves Within and Home of the Brave have collaborated with the artists Kimou Meyer, Cody Hudson, and Damien Correll, who have generously donated a new series of blankets in an effort to raise funds to help support the store and its artisans and designers. Readers can get a special pre launch discount (of $51) and free domestic ground shipping using the code SAVENY.
