(May 4, 2006 - Burbank, CA) - Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) announced today that it has awarded Nomination s.r.l, creators of the original composable charm bracelet, worldwide rights to design a collection of stainless steel fashion jewelry inspired by DC Comics’ legendary Superman and Batman characters. As part of the agreement the collections, a combination of female, male and unisex pieces, will feature necklaces, bracelets earrings and many “must have” items as jewelry accessories for handbags and pants/jeans. While the collections will be funky and versatile, the Superman line is designed around the iconic S-Shield and accented with zirconia to add a dazzling spark to daywear. The Batman line, with its darker, moodier logo, is detailed with zirconia stones and black steel - suggestive of ‘nightwear.’ The steel used in the series is of the highest quality, and each design is exclusive to Nomination. Warner Bros Consumer Products’ worldwide deal with Nomination marks the first time an Italian company has created a chic collection of jewelry inspired by world renowned Super Heroes. Available starting May 2006, the Superman and Batman collections will be marketed in dramatic and innovative ways, including in-store plexiglas displays of Metropolis and Gotham City skylines that play to the day and night themes. “We look forward to creating fashion forward jewelry that pairs the creativity of Nomination with the distinctiveness of our Superman and Batman characters,” says Jordan Sollitto, Executive Vice President of New Business Initiatives and International Licensing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “It is important for us to offer unique pieces to consumers around the globe and we are confident that we can achieve this through our partnership with Nomination, one of Italy’s top jewelry companies.” “As a jewelry company known for creating wearable symbols of communication and self-expression, Nomination is thrilled to incorporate the iconography of two of the World’s Greatest Super Heroes into pieces that symbolize integrity, confidence and empowerment,” says Alessandro Gensini, Fashion Director and Board Member of Nomination s.r.l. The collections will be sold worldwide by multi-brand independent jewelers and by (department-store based) Nomination shop-in-shops. They will also be available in Nomination mono brand shops in cities around the world from Barcelona to Singapore, Moscow to Milan and Kuala Lumpur to Hamburg. Individual pieces will retail between €94 to €156/USD$90 to USD$195. Visit www.nomination.com for details and availability. About Warner Bros. Consumer Products Warner Bros.
