LOVE BRAND & Co. and The Gentleman’s Journal hosted A Summer’s Day at Cliveden House. Top to toe in LOVE BRAND & Co. linens, guests enjoyed a poolside lunch, boating on the Thames and lawn games at The Spring Cottage. LOVE BRAND & Co. founder Oliver Tomalin hosted 10 creative men for a Very British Summer’s Day and one uninvited guest – the Summer drizzle!

The guest list included singer-songwriter Calum Scott, DJ’s Ashton Gohill and Emmanuel Lawal, entrepreneur and founder of The Gentleman Blogger Matthew Zorpas, Founder and Editor of The Gentleman’s Journal Harry Jarman, designer, actor and entrepreneur Oliver Proudlock, model and sartorialist Mathias Le Fevre, travel photographer Louis Sheridan and actor Jack Brett Anderson.

Pulling down the long drive of Cliveden House was spectacular as ever. Set-in long, beautiful National Trust gardens, this historic Italianate mansion was the perfect place to mark the end of The LOVE BRAND & Co. Great British Summer 2021. The day began with a beautiful brunch on the terrace overlooking the breathtaking gardens and grounds stretching down to the River Thames.

Our group elegantly dressed in LOVE BRAND & Co. linens walked the iconic 200 steps down to the river where they boarded The Suzy Ann (one of Cliveden’s vintage boats) for a river cruise with skipper Chris!

After taking in some of the sights the group quenched their thirst with some Quatre Vin rose, provided by guest Oliver Proudlock (founder of Quatre Vin wines). Followed by some lawn games in the garden of the Spring Cottage. Originally built for Queen Victoria as a riverside guest cottage for her visits to the Astor estate. 

The more energetic of the group climbed the 200 steps back up to the main house, while others took up the easier option for a lift in the car for a poolside lunch at the spa. The vibrancy of the gardens combined with the incredible stone masonry of the house and grounds made for the perfect setting for a timeless day in linen. Effortlessly stylish and not taking life too seriously, easy to dress up or down, discover LOVE BRAND & Co. linen for beautiful days (come rain or shine!)
