Thanks! I’m glad there’s now an official hue for anything official. And I like the shade because it’s not too red or too blue, it’s just right.

HOW Interesting !

Hiring them costs “tens of thousands of dollars,” though, so they’re almost never used by individuals. Until recently, only one person had his own Pantone color: hip-hop tycoon Jay Z, who enlisted them to create a pearl blue he’s used in his personal branding ever since.

I don't know, I'm just not feeling it. I just think it's another way of making money off of his name. I just feel "meh" about it. I don't think you can pin Prince down to one shade of purple when he represents all shades of Purple (to me anyway).


Jay-Z has a Pantone colour named after him "Jay-Z Blue" as part of a car deal he did and P always came across as an innovator of ideas rather than following something that's always been done.

Just my opinion. I guess I've gotta get used to change now P isn't here to decide things anymore.

Again....(sigh).....

But we don't really know that 100% though.

I agree he's changed but he had the copyright on his symbol so Pantone has agreed this with the Estate otherwise it would just be the name "Love Symbol #2".

I guess there'll be a lot of Purple folk redecorating soon....lol

Exactly. People have really been slacking on the murder/suicide/where did he get the drugs front lately.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

A whole room might be too much. But doing a Venetian plaster fireplace in this color with pale gray walls and black accents? That could be cool.

To be honest, I'm pretty consumed with color, wasn't Prince? I relate to that small thing.


Can someone post a picture of the last piano he ordered? tia. This is supposedly the source of the color.

It doesn't look custom. Scroll down here and you'll see the same color identified as Royal Lilac for the UK: http://www.pantone.com/fashion-color-report-fall-2017

BUT what it does is apply a consistent color to all official products.
It's good branding.

I really don't see how. Pantone colors are only meant for the printing industry. Yes, Pantone does issue a report at least twice a year on color trends in fashion and home - and they put together books of color chips. But this, by itself, will not make the estate any money.

NOW - if the estate works with (say) Behr paints or OPI nail polish to create products based on the Pantone shade, that's another matter. But for now, about the only application the Pantone color would have is if someone wanted to write something about Prince and use an "official" color on the printed page.

According to the press release:

The Estate is in conversation with various partners about collaboration on products that incorporate the custom color.


I don’t see what’s wrong with this. Honestly I’d rather have the estate making money off of something like this than selling his songs to be used in commercials.

On the color healing chart, this shade, Blue Violet, is used to open the Third Eye. Sound familiar? I have been drinking blue violet water a lot in the last year. Take a glass container of the color you want to use, fill it with water and leave it in front of a window for at least 5 hours to "charge". It doesn't have to be sunny to work. Use like any drinking water.

Kick the old-school joints. For the true funk soldiers.

That is one of the UGLIEST shades of Purple I have ever seen. Prince was vibrant and energetic, not dull and lackluster. I say NO! mad

How long do you wanna be loved. Is forever enough, is forever enough?

she was Prince's costume designer.

"Stacia moved into the mythical realm of rock music in the early 1990s with an exciting three-year stint as costume designer to Prince. Moving back to her home state of Minnesota, she worked at Paisley Park Enterprises designing stage costumes and personal clothing for Prince, his band, and several of his protegés."

Speaking of the color purple. Better Homes & Garden has highlighted the color purple in this months magazine. Page 34 gives different hues of Purple.


NOBLE PURPLES: Worn by Renaissance princes and the artist formerly and forever known as Prince, this aristocratic color looks best as found in nature as in dusty lavender...etc. etc.
