When I heard this travel clothing could go from runway to restaurant, was wrinkle resistant, stylish, comfortable, stretchy and there are even dresses, I had to go see it live. And that was easy, since the Miami based Anatomie has a big showroom where the magic happens in up and coming Little River. Plus, there are pieces for women and men.
Anatomie is a big Miami success story of a husband-wife team Kate and Shawn Boyer. Kate oversees the sales and operations, and Shawn the design and production. They started out designing gymnastics and fitness apparel about 15-years ago and have evolved to be the only luxury apparel brand partner for the Forbes Travel Guide (two-consecutive years in a row 2019-2020). Kate is originally from Budapest, went to school in France and Shawn is from Ohio. They believe that traveling freely is one of the greatest privileges in life. Their mission is to become the most-loved luxury travel brand in the world.
Clothes are mainly produced in Italy of performance quality European fabrics. They have scored writeups by the “who’s who” of media and sell in retailers like Neiman Marcus and top hotel boutiques. The company originally made its name from its Skyler pants.As comfortable as leggings, they can be worn on adventure travel or dressed up to wear to work or out to dinner. Their essentials come in black, white, navy, khaki and gray.
So light – A pair of pants is also the weight of a banana – they fold up to almost nothing – just throw in your carry-on, never check a bag again. In fact, they offer a mesh travel bag the size of a cosmetic carrying case where you can put three pair of pants and three tops, and one jacket – easy breezy to fit in a carry on bag or a weekender.
Pants come in sizes XS-XL, many body-type styles for women and one style pant now for men too (more for men to come early next year). Some pant styles, for example, come with zipper accents, cargo pockets, lace-ups at the bottom, a gold stripe down the side, and even a palazzo version. There’s also a fleece lined version for cold weather and a warm, smart black waist length fiber filled cape with fur like trim fashion piece. One of my favorite models is a camouflage style. They can be teamed with their take on a classic white blouse with very fine mesh sleeves, casual and dressy tops like their Beth Top or more relaxed styles like their Astrid top, which has pockets at the breast and adjustable ¾ sleeves.
There are also long and short sleeve mesh tops and “cami” tanks with built in bras for easy-wear, metallic windbreakers and cool looking travel jackets, some goatskin leather and mesh pieces, to make for a well-rounded, layering wardrobe for women on the go in any climate. Pieces mix and match, are wrinkle-free and low maintenance— wash in cold water and hang to dry–in just a few hours. The latest additions are a small selection of dresses, a shift model and another I got with a shirred waist in black and white all-over newspaper print.
Pants start at $225; tops at $128; jackets start at $298 dresses and jumpsuits start at $148.
