Socialites like Small Laude and Jamie Chua share one thing in common—a penchant for the luxurious things in life. The Filipino business scion and Singaporean handbag connoisseur met up for a casual chat inside Jamie's lavish walk-in wardrobe located in The Lion City.
Small's thrilled reaction was conveyed through a short Facebook caption on November 15, 2023 which read (published as is): "Ang daming Hermes!"
At first glance, the wardrobe seemed reminiscent of the one Jamie unveiled in 2019, causing a stir among fashion mavens online for its covetable designer collections and impeccable arrangement for bags. However, the 49-year-old influencer clarified that this capacious space is distinct, situated in her new residence where she began residing in March of this year.
Jamie shared her excitement on Instagram about Small's visit, stating, "Welcome to Singapore dearest @smallaude so happy to have you over in JC new closet. [lipstick stain emoji]"

Unlike Jamie's previous viral closet, which occupied a 700 square-feet floor area, the dimensions of her new haven remain undisclosed, yet it appears more expansive, housing a separate walk-in unit encased in glass.
The entire room is meticulously temperature-controlled to preserve the quality of the luxurious items.
Jamie elaborated in an Instagram reel on June 22, 2023, "Since I live in a country that has high humidity levels, I’ve also installed hidden electric dehumidifiers in every single closet to keep my clothes, shoes and handbags free from odor, mold, and mildew."
Moreover, this updated walk-in wardrobe features the same cutting-edge face-and-fingerprint-recognition lock technology as its predecessor. Beyond the dehumidifiers, the velvet-lined drawers, along with custom storage for her jewelry, sunglasses, scarves, watches, belts, and socks, are all equipped with LED lighting sensors.
According to the South China Morning Post, Jamie is acknowledged for possessing one of the largest collections of Hermes bags globally, exceeding 200 pieces and valued at over $2 million (P111,673,000). Her extensive collection extends to more than 300 pairs of shoes, averaging about $1500 (P83,670) per pair, with her most affordable pair priced at $795 (P44,391.21).
In terms of clothing, she owns a $19,000 (P1,060,941.00) Gucci Fox Fur Coat, a $27,000 (P1,507,653.00) Rami Kadi gown, and numerous Chanel jacket dresses each costing $8899 (P496,911.26).
