If you like your resortwear as #minimalist as KonMari’s closet, this is your spiritual home
Jac+ Jack have been supplying Sydneysiders with cashmere in winter and linen in summer for over a decade. Their love of all things natural and neutral extends from their fibres to their dyes to their smart unisex silhouettes. The George Livissianis-designed Bondi store (all cool concrete and warm leather) is a perfect articulation of this look.
“I’ve lived in and around Bondi for over 20 years – it’s iconic, a place to experience the quintessential Australian lifestyle, where you can live by the beach, enjoy the outdoors and still be close to the city,” says the brand’s co-founder Lisa Dempsey. “There is a strong local community and of course plenty of visitors especially through the summer months.”
If you’re in the market for a relaxed white shirt, a flowing sack-dress or a pair of roll-cuffed brushed cotton trousers, you will not be disappointed. “We wanted people to feel welcome and comfortable walking in after a day at the beach. The majority of our regular Bondi customers are locals who have an appreciation for the Jac+ Jack sensibility and the lifestyle the brand embodies. The store has quite a strong menswear following and it’s great to see the guys living and dressing for Bondi.”
Jac+ Jack’s prices start at around $80 for a soft cotton tee, and move to upwards of $1,000 for a cashmere-blend winter coat, with shirts hovering around the $250 to $300 mark. Knitwear aside, Jac+ Jack are best known for their gossamer-thin, oversized shawls, which range from $100 to $500 depending on their fabric composition.
