Nouveau: Nickelodeon Avatar
THE POWER OF FOUR
Nouveau Eyewear adds Avatar, a boys’ eyewear collection, to its ever-popular Nickelodeon
children’s line. Inspired by the hit television series, the Avatar collection incorporates
the cartoon’s popular Japanese anime style. Included are four frames constructed of metal

designs. Modern profiles and angles echo Asian architecture.
Such show-inspired details as the four elements complete the look.
Frames are offered in shades of blue, brown and gunmetal. All
styles are equipped with spring hinges.
