Prince

In partnership with Prince's estate, Pantone have created  a purple hue which became synonymous with the artist. From his logo to his custom-made Yamaha piano, his stage-wear and even his song titles, Prince was the King of Purple.

In a statement, Laurie Pressman, the vice-president of the Pantone Color Institute said: ''We are honoured to have worked on the development of Love Symbol #2, a distinctive new purple shade created in memory of Prince, 'the purple one.' A musical icon known for his artistic brilliance, Love Symbol #2 is emblematic of Prince’s distinctive style. Long associated with the purple family, Love Symbol #2 enables Prince’s unique purple shade to be consistently replicated and maintain the same iconic status as the man himself.''
