Nouveau Announces Two New Licenses — Duck Commander and Hot Kiss

CARROLLTON, Texas— Nouveau Eyewear has announced two new additions to its licensed brand portfolio — Duck Commander featuring RealTree camouflage from Duck Commander, Inc. and the international fashion label Hot Kiss, an affiliate of Bluestar Alliance LLC. The licenses, both for multi-year terms, include the design, manufacture and distribution of ophthalmic frames and sunglasses. Duck Commander will be distributed in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Central and South America territories; while the Hot Kiss license is for global distribution.

“Duck Commander and Hot Kiss are the newest additions to Nouveau Eyewear’s brand portfolio,” said Dominick Sblendorio, CEO and president of Nouveau. “Our realigned family of brands reflects our commitment to innovative style, extraordinary value and intense focus on product quality.”

The Duck Commander brand is legendary among outdoor enthusiasts and has gained popularity thanks to the reality show Duck Dynasty on A&E, featuring its founding family. Duck Commander Eyewear, which will debut in December, will feature official RealTree camouflage patterns and frames built for the outdoor enthusiast’s unique needs.

Hot Kiss is an apparel line of on-trend denim, dresses, footwear and more designed for the modern, fashion-forward girl. Hot Kiss is sold in specialty stores and finer departments stores including Dillard’s, Macy’s and Nordstrom. The Hot Kiss Eyewear collection, launching in 2013, will bring the same trendy, fashion-savvy designs the brand is known for to the eyewear market.
