For several years now, fans of Sydney label Jac+Jack have stalked Melbourne stockists in order to purchase its high quality fabrics and timeless designs. But now, founders Jacqueline ‘Jac’ Hunt and Lisa ‘Jack’ Dempsey have decided that the loyal shoppers of Melbourne deserve a little store of their own.
Expanding from their Sydney space and putting their stamp on the retail scene in Melbourne seemed a natural progression. “We’ve both been wanting to open a store in Melbourne for a number of years now. It has just been a matter of waiting for the right site,” says Dempsey. “The time is right for us and Melbourne is right for us.”
Jac+Jack’s designs have been impressing both Australian men and women alike since its launch in 2004. Using natural fabrics and materials – including pure cashmere, Australian superfine merino and fine cotton, silk, linen and bamboo twill – Jac+Jack specialise in wearable luxury.
Located in a Victorian terrace row in Hawksburn Village, the design of the store juxtaposes the soft colour palettes and delicate fabrics of the clothing by employing a subtly industrial and urban aesthetic. “The new store is meant to be what the label is and that’s effortless, sophisticated and modern,” says Dempsey of the space.
With a perfect setting and a beautifully crafted collection waiting to be explored, Jac+Jack will ensure that Melburnians continue to be a well-dressed bunch.
