Our Brand Story

Hello! My name is Meghan Victoria (she/her) and I am the Founder & Creative Director of SOL KYST. (Meghan Victoria Inc.) I am a Toronto based professional makeup/hair artist and content creator with nearly a decade working in the beauty industry.

I set out to use my knowledge, expertise of face shapes, the principles of beauty, and symmetry to create the perfect sunglasses that not only fit a wider face but flattered it as well.

As someone with a wide and square face shape I have never been able to find a pair of sunglasses that worked with my unique features and made me feel not only beautiful, but confident as well. And as someone who's dedicated her career to making women feel beautiful and confident (inside and out) I knew I was not the only one who could relate. I had a unique perspective and experience and now the oppurtunity to revolutionize the sunglasses industry.

From the beginning It was really important to me that I wasn't just widening the measurements of basic sunglasses but truly honing in on the features associated with a wider face and bringing them to life with a brand new thoughtfully crafted design.

Using makeup as my inspiration and highlight and contour techniques, I thought about how to craft our products using light and shadow to create the illusions of a more defined jawline and cheekbones while also bringing more beauty, balance and definition to the face.

SOL KYST offers classic designs with a emphasis on function and versatility. From our designs to material choices every part of the process is chosen with care and intention to bring you a pair of sunglasses that will last you years.

In celebration of size inclusivity we're here breaking down this barrier with you: giving you the permission to shine your light and share with the world the confidence you already hold inside!

These are not just another pair of sunglasses - SOL KYST is an entire experience designed with you in mind. I’m so excited and grateful to share with you.

Xo, Meghan
