The Super Adventures of Sophie and the City is a series of children’s books written by Kelly Florio Kasouf and illustrated by Judit García-Talavera. Kelly Florio Kasouf is the daughter of late Condé Nast chief executive officer Steve Florio. She released the first adventure of Sophie last year – “All in a Day’s Work” – for which she harnessed her own childhood experiences with the fashion world. In the second book “Grand Central Escapades” released earlier this month, Sophie is on a time-traveling voyage to the Twenties, with appearances from Christian Dior, Paul Poiret and Marguerite Lanvin.
Both books are a great Xmas gifts for fashionable little (or not so little) girls!
Oscar de la Renta for Sophie
In early 2013, Oscar de la Renta will retail a special dress in his new children’s collection that was created for Sophie, to mirror both her sophistication and sense of whimsy and wonder. The cotton voile fabric mimics a watercolor iris, which complements the illustrations of the Sophie series.
“We were very excited to be able to make a special dress for Sophie, knowing that in a little Oscar de la Renta dress, she would shine the world over on her adventures through the greatest of all cities,” says Catherine Monteiro de Barros, VP of Design, Childrenswear.
