Love Symbol #2
Prince Estate and Pantone Color Institute - the worldwide color authority - have announced the creation of customized customized color in honor of the international music icon Prince. Prince is one of the most important, influential and fascinating artists in the history of music. With 100 million records sold all over the world is one of the most famous artists of all time.
Prince, who joined the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, received the Academy Award® in 1985 in the category "Best Soundtrack with Original Songs" for the Purple Rain movie, a total of seven GRAMMY Awards®, the Golden Globe Award 2006 for "Best Original Song" in Happy Feet, an American Music Award and countless other awards.
Purple Rain, 1984, remains one of Prince's peaks, a work that has changed the world of cinema and music. He got the diamond disc from RIAA for sales of over 13 million, and with over 22 million copies is ranked sixth in the standings of all time relating to soundtracks.
The purple shade (of course!) Represented by the "Love Symbol # 2" draws inspiration from Prince Yamaha's piano, personalized in purple, which should accompany the artist who died early at the age of 57 on his last tour. The color honors the indelible sign left by Prince in the field of music, art, fashion and culture. "The purple color was and will always be synonymous with Prince's personality. It's an amazing way to make it live forever, "said PrinceEstate's Entertainment Advisor Troy Carter.
Prince's association with violet color has been particularly emphasized in 1984, with the release of the Purple Rain film and its Oscar-winning soundtrack, featuring the song of the same name. Although Purple will generally continue to be used for Purple One, Love Symbol # 2 will however be the official color for any kind of material related to the artist's appearance.
Laurie Pressman, Vice President of Pantone Color Institute, said: "We are honored to have collaborated on the development of Love Symbol # 2, a special new shade of purple created in memory of Prince, 'The Purple One', a music note known for Love Symbol # 2 is emblematic of Prince's distinctive style. Long symbolized with the purple chromatic family, Love Symbol # 2 allows Prince's purple Prince's unique shade to be duplicated evenly, keeping an iconic state identical to that of the artist ".
