5 MIN­UTES WITH… JEFF LACK

Start­ing off in men’s re­tail fash­ion, Jeff has al­ways had an eye for colour and thor­oughly en­joyed the psy­cho­log­i­cal el­e­ment of helping peo­ple dress. He took the leap to be­come a free­lance stylist 12 years ago. This is­sue he dressed our cover star, Jamie Oliver.

WHAT’S A TYP­I­CAL DAY FOR A STYLIST?

Check In­sta­gram over break­fast, then emails be­fore at­tack­ing a list that varies ev­ery day. I could be sourc­ing for a pri­vate client, on an edi­to­rial shoot, pack­ing up re­turns, writ­ing, shop­ping for a pri­vate client or view­ing a new sea­son collection.

WHAT DO YOU AN­A­LYSE WHEN STYLING?

Fit, colour, style. Un­der­stand­ing the unique colour com­bi­na­tions and body shape of an in­di­vid­ual will drive you to the styling out­comes.

WHAT’S A FAIL­SAFE LOOK FOR A BIG DAY AT THE OF­FICE?

Navy suit, white shirt, dark brown shoes, navy pin dot tie and white pocket square. If your au­di­ence is more re­laxed, it’s easy to open up two but­tons on your shirt and take off your tie. My mantras is: If you look good, you will feel great.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE DRESS­ING JAMIE OLIVER?

I loved the ex­pe­ri­ence be­cause Jamie has been a hero of mine for many years – he taught me how to cook! The fact that he was a gentle­man and gen­uinely funny made me feel com­fort­able and con­fi­dent to just do my job.
