If you, like us, have been spending A LOT more time on the internet, then you’ll have noticed many of our creative peers are compiling ‘things they love’ – a kind of jaunty visual series to remedy the doom and gloom with things that are anything but.

So if fashion helps you stay zen in stressful times, we suggest zoning out with these beauties below as we bring you our second edit of lovely things to look at. Just scrolling the new season spoils offers a strangely numbing solace (not to mention something irresistibly soothing about the scroll itself), and the joy we take from the art of fashion should not be discounted.

While pushing a “happy thoughts” mentality won’t put an end to the tragedy unfolding or pacify the pain of losing loved ones, jobs and livelihoods, it does do a lot for our mental state, which for many, is really, really suffering.

So whether you’re one for curating aspirational online wish lists that do nothing but serve you a dreamlike sangfroid, or truly feel like purchasing a little pick-me-up (most of the below retailers are indulging some kind of sale, too), here’s a list of lovely things to look at, buy, or both in these terribly sombre circumstances.
