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.
