Woman jumps into the sea to save her €750 Jacquemus bag

Now this is what we call dedication to the brand.

Whilst dining at a local sea-side restaurant in Malta, TikTok user @tayylorking0’s €750 Jacquemus bag fell into the sea. 


You have to respect the dedication hahahahaha @Jacquemus

♬ Oh No – Kreepa

But Taylor wasn’t about to let her precious, and expensive, bag be sacrificed to the local waters near InterContinental’s seaside restaurant of Paranga. 

So she did what she had to do – she leapt into the sea and retrieved her pink bag. Documenting the stunt on TikTok, she showed her followers that she was in fact reunited with it, having managed to retrieve it before it made its way down to the depths.

She also took the opportunity to make the brand of Jacquemus aware of her dedication by tagging them in the TikTok description.

Would you have jumped into the water to save your expensive bag?

The country, formerly a Soviet republic, applied in 2022 to join the EU and became a candidate in June of that same year along with Ukraine. 

The EP President addressed the crowd, urging them to ‘hold steady, keep strong. The world can hear the heart of Europe beating on the streets of Chisinau.’ 

‘Moldova will make Europe stronger, safer and more free. We will be with you all the way. Together there is nothing we cannot face.’

This of course amidst increasing tension with Vladimir Putin’s Russia as neighbouring Ukraine continues to repel back the invasion. The bid by Moldova to join the EU was largely prompted following the war in Ukraine.
