What happened to the Birkins?!?

By now I think most of you would have heard about the flash flood that hit Orchard Road in Singapore this morning. I’m mostly stunned by it since I’ve never actually seen a flood so bad in Singapore yet (plus the fact that my office isn’t really too far away from it!) but since we’ve had plenty of flash floods back home in KL – try every time there’s any heavy rain for more than 15 mins – it didn’t really have too much impact on me.

That is, until I saw this photo a while ago...

The water’s definitely over a metre high since there are steps leading down to the entrance of Starbucks and Massimo Dutti (and Starbucks’ outside seating area is completely submerged). But that’s not the big deal.

For those familiar with Orchard Road, you’d know that the shop a couple of doors away from the Massimo Dutti is none other than...HERMES! What’s more, when I was walking along that stretch with Paris and Pinkelle a couple of weekends back, we saw...BIRKIN bags in the window!!

So nevermind the Starbucks, what happened to the Birkins?? (I don’t think they’re about to have a ‘flood damage’ sale, right?)

Oh no! At least Zara was on high ground. That would be a bit scary to see, especially if you'd spent the morning shopping and had no idea!
