Zara fans! You can say you heard it here! Their sista brand, BERKSHA will open at ION! Hurray!! I first found it at Tsing Yi's Airport Express Mall in Kowloon and it was love at first sight - spaghetti tops, dresses, cargo pants, Indian cotton, Summer prints ... lets just say I bought with little reserve. And at the changing rooms, a friendly sales girl with an accent just like mine, politely asked "BTW, are you Singaporean?" and there it was that I found out that Bershka will open at ION, soon, if not already opened. See their look book:
