The Luxe Report

Jeremy Langmead, editor of Mr Porter (the new Net-a-Porter men’s shopping site), reveals his extravagant essentials.

La Mamounia
“Marrakech is one of my favorite holiday destinations — La Mamounia is where I stay,” Langmead says. The opulent Moroccan resort boasts seven signature suites (starting at $1,850 a night), each individually themed. The 7th Art Suite’s decor is a nod to Hollywood’s classic black-and-white films and has a private screening room. mamounia.com

John Lobb monk-strap shoes
“They’re chic and versatile.” The handmade double-buckle shoes from London, which take 190 steps to make, “look great with slim navy dress pants or with chinos rolled up twice from the hem.” johnlobb.com, $1,080

Bottega Veneta tote
“I travel a lot and need something light, delectable and roomy. This large woven-leather holdall fits the bill.”
bottegaveneta.com, $2,500

Falcon custom-built motorcycle
“These are the most beautifully conceived items in the world,” Langmead says. More than 4,000 hours of handcraftsmanship are dedicated to each “bespoke machine” built in Los Angeles, with gold, silver and palladium leaf detailing and a one-of-a-kind engine with racing pedigree. falconmotorcycles.com, price upon request

Christian Schoeler painting
“I buy far too many paintings. I have neither the wall space nor money to fund this habit, but I currently have my eye on a mixed-media and oil painting by the young German artist Christian Schoeler.” brandnew-gallery.com, $15,680

Luis Morais sandalwood bracelet
“It has a white-gold skull — a hint of irreverence mixed in with a more formal look makes a nice contrast.” luismorais.com, $510

Richard James mohair blazer
“White-pearl buttons give it an elegant edge, so you can sling it on over a dress shirt or over a T-shirt.” mrporter.com, $590
