For nearly 10 years, Ki ET LA has been imagining, designing, and manufacturing sunglasses for children from 0 to 12 years of age. An expertise acquired over the years through the drive of three founders who wanted to revolutionise the market for children’s sunglasses. The brand has come a long way since then! Ki ET LA now has a range of UNBREAKABLE glasses for children up to 6 years of age, an EXTRA FLEX SUN & SCREEN range for 6- to 12-year-olds, and a range of ultra-colourful anti-UV hats and clothing! Over the years, Ki ET LA has become the expert in solar protection for children.
DESIGN OF THE COLLECTIONS IN PARIS
All the collections are imagined and designed by the creative Anne-Charlotte Legrand, co-founder and product development director. She is a graduate of the Ecole de Design de Nantes and designs and models the collections in central Paris.
She is passionate about the world of children, always bubbling with ideas and is a driving force pushing Ki ET LA to innovate and reinvent itself with each new day.
The collections are marked by a bright zingy style that always feature smart design, good looks, practicality and comfort. Ki ET LA thinks about the children but also about their parents!
Creativity, design and innovation are front and centre of creation at Ki ET LA.
CREATOR OF SUNGLASSES FOR CHILDREN ON THE MOVE!
Ki ET LA has been designing collections EXCLUSIVELY for children for nearly 10 years. Following the success of the Diabola model, sunglasses with 2 sizes in one for babies, Ki ET LA has kept up the momentum with a range of UNBREAKABLE sunglasses for children up to 6 years of age and then ULTRA FLEX sunglasses for kids up to 12 years of age.
Ki ET LA continues to design ever more fun and comfortable models for children.
Each day, the design team takes inspiration from iconic adult models and then remodels them for children. Ki ET LA shapes this unique savoir faire with perseverance, dynamism and attention to detail. A true passion!
DESIGN & INNOVATION, AT THE HEART OF THE STRATEGY
Ki ET LA places design and innovation at the heart of its strategy. This effort has been rewarded by several labels and awards:
Having already been awarded the fashion Janus for the Kapel hat, Ki ET LA was awarded the health Janus by the French Institute of Design in 2018 for its CraZyg-Zag sunglasses collection for 6- to 12-year-olds.
The Diabolas received the Strategic Design Trophy from the Nantes Atlantique School of Design, for the design of its adaptable unbreakable sunglasses for babies.
It has also received three Top Labels awarded by parent testers from the online review site ConsoBaby. The Diabola sunglasses, the Kapel hat and the Pop anti-UV T-shirt received top ratings from parents, in the ‘Baby’s sunglasses’ and ‘Anti-UV protection’ categories respectively.
