Biography

Jeremy Langmead has returned to Mr Porter as brand and content director.

Langmead was editor-in-chief and one of the founding members of Mr Porter, a subsidiary of Net-a-Porter, when it launched in 2011. He was responsible for the editorial content of the e-tailer, which stocks 170 designers, including Givenchy, Gucci, Lanvin, Burberry and Alexander McQueen, and publishes a weekly online magazine, entitled The Journal.

Langmead left The Net-a-Porter Group in 2014 to join auction house Christie's, where as chief content officer he would develop editorial content across the marketing, communications, e-commerce and digital departments.

Surprisingly, given the worldwide success of Mr Porter, its previous editor-in-chief, and now brand and content director, had never worked in the digital market, prior to his appointment in 2010. Immediately before Mr Porter Langmead was editor-in-chief of Esquire, from 2007 – 2010, and interiors magazine Wallpaper from 2003 - 2007.

Langmead learnt his trade in newspapers however, “I started off in newspapers, when we still had to change words on the stone before it went to press and as a sub editor, you had to measure the copy to cut it to fit the page and count the letters in a headline to make sure it fitted in the gap.” Langmead would rise through the News International ranks to edit and establish The Sunday Times Style supplement for six years, before becoming the life and style editor of The Evening Standard in 2002.

Langmead was educated at Central Saint Martins and has two sons with India Knight.
