NOVATO, Calif., July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TravelSmith is excited to announce a new partnership with travel expert and television personality Samantha Brown. Through travels that have taken her to 220 cities in 49 countries over the last decade and a half, Samantha has become one of the world's most prominent voices in travel. For most of her life, travel has held a special place in Samantha's heart. Beyond experiencing new places and cultures, "Travel is one of the few experiences we have in life that marks a fresh start. It's a new beginning whether you're going away for a weekend or a month," says Samantha. TravelSmith's Fall 2014 catalog features Samantha prominently on the front and back cover. Throughout the catalog and online, some of Samantha's favorite TravelSmith merchandise is highlighted in a series of " Samantha Brown Picks," along with a quote from Samantha about each item. Plus, the globetrotting Ms. Brown's experiences have been instrumental in bringing a personal touch to TravelSmith's signature Travel Tips, both on the pages of the catalog and at travelsmith.com. TravelSmith President Johnny Lin is more than ready to get the party started. "The waiting is over, and we're so happy to launch our partnership with Samantha," says Lin. "This marks the beginning of a beautiful friendship—with lots of surprises yet to come." In the meantime, Lin says, "Be sure to check travelsmith.com for additions to Samantha Brown Picks—we'll be adding new items through the end of the year." Samantha has long been a fan of the company. For Samantha, "TravelSmith has always represented a quality experience through its clothes and gear. It's not about being gimmicky or too trendy—it's about what works so you can enjoy the experience fully."
