From fashion insider favourite Rixo to cult jewellery brand Missoma, these fashionable pieces are helping fight the battle against Covid-19.

Among the daily delivery of incredibly heart-breaking and sad news regarding the Covid-19 crisis, it is always heart-warming to hear tales of good, extraordinary efforts and brilliant ideas that are helping bring people together and fight the battle against coronavirus. We have seen Captain Tom Moore raise an incredible amount of money for the NHS, doctors and nurses come out of retirement to join their comrades and as a nation, the simple act of staying at home is saving lives. 

When it comes to fashion, we have seen a huge number of brands step up to bring their expertise, creativity and skills to do their part in this ongoing battle. Big fashion houses have utilised their production to create protective equipment for medical staff, many brands have donated significant percentages of sales to a number of Covid-19 charities and some brands have even created meaningful and inspiring pieces to raise money for the cause.

Rixo, Sandro, M&S and many more of our favourite brands have all created T-shirts whereby the sales of that product will go to helping those directly affected. Chinti and Parker have created a cosy jumper (we didn’t need a reason to buy more loungewear but this will definitely do), whereby the profits are being donated to Meal for the NHS, and cult jewellery brand Missoma have designed a necklace with clapping hands etched into the pendant that will long remind us of our gratitude to all those helping to combat this crisis.

In these increasingly tough times it can be difficult to be feel inspired, but let these pieces serve as a reminder than we are all in this together.
