Meet Mecphie Charles, founder of KYLO The Label

Everything started when Mecphie was visually planning her son’s wardrobe for his first vacation. She noticed a lack of timeless, chic, minimalist resort wear pieces for a young boy, and knew the look she wanted to put together for her kid to wear but could not easily find what she was looking for.

In 2020, Mecphie decided to give life to KYLO The Label, a Made in Italy kids travelwear brand designed in Canada. She started creating pieces for parents who desire a refined sense of ease and elegance for their children’s travelwear.

Designed in Canada, and produced in Italy, KYLO The Label is a love letter to Mecphie’s son – Kylo, her muse, her source of inspiration and her drive to create a unique timeless brand.

“I wanted to create something that would merge my passions, that would not only sell beautiful garments, but also tell a story. Something that allows us to dream, to be transported and encourage us to explore with our children.”

ETHICAL CRAFTMANSHIP, TRAVEL-INSPIRED AND TIMELESS LUXURY

Mecphie seeks to redefine luxury children’s clothing with a collection of ethically made, pure linen resort wear pieces, stitched in timelessness and designed to be well-worn and well-loved by all children and parents alike.

KYLO was founded with 3 main values in mind:

  • Ethical Craftsmanship – All garments are ethically handcrafted with the highest quality standards. Her local artisans in Italy use 100% natural linen to make each and every one of your pieces which are special and unique – just like children.

  • Travel-Inspired – Each timeless collection is inspired by exotic destinations from around the world from Africa to the Caribbean and Europe. KYLO’s goal is to escape with you and your child to far-off places.

  • Timeless Luxury – KYLO believes in understated, Quiet Luxury, for the ones we hold most dear, our children. Each piece is an investment, one which lasts a lifetime and can be passed down from generation to generation along with stories and memories of vacations and blissful years passed.

“Italian Artisan has opened the door for me to have access and connect with Italian artisans who believe in timeless Made in Italy craftsmanship and don’t just focus on quantity. They’ve helped me create a beautiful trusting relationship with my manufacturer. They believe in the success of my brand, and have supported me along the journey while continuing to adapt to the needs of KYLO The Label as it continues to grow.”

THE HERITAGE

It all started with Mecphie’s Haitian heritage, a rich island culture that imbues the most meaningful elements in life—slow living, family, and nature.

From there, Mecphie drew her inspiration from anything that speaks to her soul, that makes her feel and want to create memories with her son and experience the world and everything it has to offer. It could be a secluded Villa, a beautiful fruit stand on the side of the road, or a relaxing lunch at a beachside restaurant. 

From a safari in Africa, sunset dinners in the Caribbean and bustling cafes in Europe, KYLO’s luxury resort wear Made in Italy pieces are purposefully made for curious little souls and all of life’s greatest adventures, near and far.
