What inspired the author to create Sophie and the City

about the author

Kelly Florio Kasouf

about the author

Kelly Florio Kasouf adds the final title to the Sophie and the City series with One Suite Holiday. In a modern day re-imagination of the holiday classic The Nutcracker, One Suite Holiday follows Sophie as she embarks on a wild ride though the vibrant and diverse neighborhoods of NYC, meeting a cast of colorful characters along the way. Sophie begins her journey with a trip to the legendary Lincoln Center with her family to watch The Nutcracker, but she is soon lost in her own imagination – and so the adventure begins. An "Herr Drosselmeyer" looking character gives a special package to Sophie and her new friend Fritz, while the Upper East Side boys are cast as the wooden soldiers and the Lower East Side graffiti artists as the mice. Each neighborhood comes to life with characters and history as the modernized Nutcracker meets West Side Story, and they all enjoy the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies at Dylan's Candy Bar, and snow angels in Gramercy Park. One Suite Holiday is another fabulously grand tale of fashion and history in the city that never sleeps.

alice + olivia x Sophie and the City

In celebration of the launch of her third title, Kelly partnered with alice + olivia to create an exclusive dress and coat. The dress features a black ponte knit top with white embroidered tulle skirt, and the chenille coat boasts a bold black and white stripe pattern – both capturing the vivacity and movement of the illustrations. The items will be available through the season at Bergdorf Goodman, select alice + olivia stores and online at aliceandolivia.com.

“Stacey and the alice + olivia brand exude the magic of New York City. From her patterns and whimsy, to her ability to design clothing that girls of all ages covet, I can’t think of anyone who could better design Sophie’s ensemble,” describes Kelly.

“It was such a fun opportunity to work on a children’s line. I have two little girls with a third on the way and loved designing a capsule collection that they could wear. My daughters and I love reading the Sophie and the City books and it was exciting to create a custom alice + olivia look for one of our favorite characters, “ says alice + olivia’s CEO and Creative Director Stacey Bendet.
