Anyone still mourning the untimely death of music icon Prince while at the same time stumped for a colour to paint their living room’s accent wall — good news.
The Prince Estate, alongside Pantone Color Institute™, announced this week the creation of “Love Symbol #2” — a new customized colour that “pays tribute to Prince’s indelible mark on music, art, fashion and culture.”
“The color purple was synonymous with who Prince was and will always be. This is an incredible way for his legacy to live on forever,” said Troy Carter, Entertainment Advisor to Prince’s Estate.
Yes, what a way for Prince’s legacy to live forever, whether it’s brightening up a drab living room previously painted Walter Matthau Beige or adding some spice to a dormant bedroom occupied by a middle-age couple in a loveless marriage who, ironically, conceived their three children to Prince’s grind-positive “Darling Nikki.”
No word yet if Prince’s estate has any other corporate collaborations in the works, but we figure it’s only a matter of time before we see Old Navy’s new line of “Raspberry Berets,” “When Doves Cry” Kleenex brand tissue paper and Taco Time’s “I Would Die 4 U Chimichanga” with “Let’s Go Crazy” chipotle sauce.
