The Luxe Report: Jeremy Langmead

The 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 décor 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 dressed up with slim navy dress pants or dressed down with chinos rolled up twice from the hem.” $1,080, mrporter.com (http://www.mrporter.com/product/301178)

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

-- 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 (price upon request). falconmotorcycles.com

-- 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 that’s at the Brand New Gallery in Milan.” $15,680, brandnew-gallery.com

-- 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.” $510, mrporter.com (http://www.mrporter.com/product/162295)

-- Richard James mohair blazer “White-pearl buttons give it an elegant edge, so you can sling it over a dress shirt or over a T-shirt,” Langmead says. $590, mrporter.com (http://www.mrporter.com/product/300805)
