Kate and Shawn Boyer founded Anatomie in 2006 after years in the active clothing business. Born in Budapest, Kate was pursuing a MBA in International Trade in the French town of Montpellier, while she worked as a teenage girls gymnastics coach to help finance her degree. She dressed the three-year French aerobic championship team in outfits she had designed to wear herself. From there, the self-taught designer traveled to St. Barth, developing the private label collections for many exclusive resorts. She met Ohio native Shawn in Miami, where he was designing customized clothing for hard-to-fit athletic men. The two forged forces—in business and in love—to design sportswear for brands such as Elite Models, Cigarette Boats, Lamborghini and Nikki Beach clubs.
Finally, it was time to go out on their own and launch Anatomie, a name that speaks to the impeccable fit and sleek tailoring of the brand’s designs. The duo transitioned their activewear background into the athleisure category, taking it to the next level as a travel-specific luxury line with their exclusive distribution and marketing partnerships. As CEO, Kate is involved with every aspect of the business, from selling to production to fabric selection. Creative director Shawn leads a team of international designers to create seasonal collections that are now carried in more than 300 specialty stores and featured in private shopping events and trunk shows nationwide. Although they regularly travel all over the world for trade shows and sales events, their home base is in Miami with their young daughter Charlee and their dog George.
In an effort to make the world a better place, Anatomie regularly partners with various charities and philanthropic efforts, including the Children of Africa Foundation, the UJA- Federation of New York, the Vail Valley Foundation YouthPower365, the Hampton Classic Auction and the ISPA Auction.
