I have to admit that I hadn’t heard of Anatomie Apparel until these folks contacted me about reviewing their clothes.
While Anatomie is best known for their line of pants, I was most interested in testing out the Diane Travel Jacket as I really like lightweight jackets–especially for cold plane rides–and I knew this would get a lot of use.
I’ve since discovered that Anatomie has a wide range of clothing options and all are really ideal for travelers.
How so, you ask?
Well, the first thing I noticed with the Diane Travel Jacket is that the emphasis is on comfort. It’s made of a nylon and lycra blend that gives it it an excellent stretch. Even with the jacket zipped all the way up, I can easily twist and move around. In other words, it has lots of give.
Both owners of the company have a background in designing performance clothes for athletes, so it makes total sense that comfort would be such a high priority for them.
But Anatomie clothes go beyond being practical. They are also quite upscale in their styles. Think: Paris. Check out any item on their site, and you’ll see that they possess a stylish sensibility.
Because the materials they use are so lightweight, they pack down small and will take up little space in your bag.
The Diane Travel Jacket has two front pockets with flaps, great for tucking away items while you’re touring around a city.
It can be worn zipped up (pictured above) for a tailored shape, or open (pictured below) for a more casual look. What struck me as so unique about the Diane, however, is the long length of it. It comes down much longer than most other light jackets I have. And that’s a bonus as it seems to provide a much sleeker style than a short, waist-length coat.
The Diane Travel Jacket is available in Black, Grey, Navy, Khaki and Purple.
Anatomie is a designer fashion house that creates elegant, luxury travel wear using high-performance fabrics to ensure that the woman traveler wanders the world in style and comfort.
