A&K IN PARTNERSHIP WITH


Pioneers of luxury travel A&K has joined forces with LOVE BRAND & Co. to celebrate

their 60th anniversary in sartorial style. To mark this special occasion a bespoke

collection of six prints has been designed to honour six glorious decades of travel.

A passion for travel, conservation and philanthropy lies at the heart of both brands

making them the perfect partners to celebrate such an iconic moment in A&K’s history.

The patterns play across signature swim shorts and linen shirts. You can choose from a

lion print, the symbol of East Africa, and the place where A&K Founder, Co-Chairman

and CEO Geoffrey Kent inaugurated the concept of luxury travel, through to a penguin

print which gives a nod to A&K’s expedition cruises to the Antarctic.

The capsule also features colourful designs inspired by travel to China, Egypt, Uganda,

and an ocean blue rosette in recognition of A&K being the world’s best luxury tour

operator. A donation will be made to A&K Philanthropy by LOVE BRAND & Co.

from all purchases of this historic collection.

LOVE BRAND & Co. was created by husband-and-wife team, Oliver and Rose Tomalin,

with a founding mission to protect the natural world and endangered species.

This ethical British beachwear brand is popular with royalty and discerning travellers.

“Designing a capsule to help A&K celebrate such a milestone is a proud moment

for the brand. Travelling with A&K as a child with my father has left a lasting impression

on me,” said Oliver Tomalin, Founder of LOVE BRAND & Co.

60 and Still Roaring

In 1962, Geoffrey Kent founded A&K in Kenya with his parents Valerie and

Colonel John Kent. As the pioneer of luxury travel, Geoffrey introduced the first

mobile-tented safari and chilled his signature sundowners using a sterling silver ice

bucket. This set the standard of adventure by day and luxury by night. A&K soon

started to gaze beyond the East African horizon towards new destinations.

LINEN SHIRT £140

A&K’s 60th-anniversary celebrations are commemorated with

LOVE BRAND & Co.’s eye-catching white lion print offset with

a sky-blue background. The king of the jungle is the symbol of

East Kenya and the beating heart of A&K’s heritage.

Lucky Lanterns

Guests of A&K were the earliest western travellers to access China when the first

office opened in 1979 in Hong Kong. This followed a 67-day reconnaissance trip by

Geoffrey Kent. Later in the 2020s, A&K again redefined luxury travel in China with

the Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer. Today A&K operate across the whole of Asia.

Egyptian Wonder

In the early 1980s, A&K was the first travel company to secure an operating licence

to take guests into Egypt. Following the original Death on the Nile, Geoffrey Kent

had the vision to purchase the paddle steamer used in the film. This led to a fleet of

Sanctuary Sun Boats which set the standard for luxury cruises down the mighty Nile.

LINEN SHIRT £140

A century since Howard Carter discovered the Tomb of

Tutankhamun, there has never been a better time to celebrate

The gorilla print commemorates the moment in 1985 when Geoffrey Kent visited

Uganda and paved the way for A&K guests to observe the elusive mountain gorillas.

Following talks with the man who became President of Uganda Yoweri Museveni the

first luxury camp was set up in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Today, the park provides

a safe haven for more than half of the world’s critically endangered mountain gorillas.
