About 2 Years, 6 Months, 4 Weeks, 1 Day, 8 Hours ago.
Today saw the announcement that Jeremy Langmead will be returning to luxury online menswear retailer Mr-Porter after a one year hiatus from the fashion industry.
Langmead has been appointed as the new brand and content director of Mr Porter, a new role which previously didn’t exist at Mr Porter. He will return to the luxury online retailer in June. Talking to WWD, Langmead said: “A year away was far too long”. In his new role he’ll be responsible for developing the content strategy for Mr Porter, by pushing the editorial content and creative brand marketing on a global level. He’ll be in charge of the content and marketing teams worldwide.
Langmead was appointed as Mr Porter first ever editor-in-chief in 2010, having previously held the same title at Esquire UK and Wallpaper. He joined auction house Christie’s in February last year, taking on the role of Chief Content Officer, responsible for developing the editorial content across all channels. With a successful career in fashion journalism, Langmead has come to be considered as a voice of authority in the luxury fashion industry.
John Brodie, who was recruited to replace Langmead as editor-in-chief, will stay on at Mr Porter, as editorial director of the U.S. division. He’ll focus on developing the editorial content targeting the budding American market, which has seen a growth spurt over the past year.
By returning to Mr Porter, Langmead will reintegrate the Net-a-Porter fold, which has recently undergone a major structural change: indeed, his move comes shortly after the announcement of the Yoox-Net-a-Porter merger, which will see both high-end e-commerce platforms form the Net-a-Porter Group.
