Pantone Love Symbol #2 for Prince

The Prince Estate, alongside Pantone Color Institute™, the global color authority, announced earlier this month (August 14,2017) the creation of a standardized custom color to represent and honor international icon, Prince. The (naturally) purple hue, represented by his “Love Symbol #2” was inspired by his custom-made Yamaha purple piano, which was originally scheduled to go on tour with the performer before his untimely passing at the age of 57. The color pays tribute to Prince’s indelible mark on music, art, fashion and culture. 

Prince’s association with the color purple was galvanized in 1984 with the release of the film Purple Rain, along with its Academy Award-winning soundtrack featuring the eponymous song. While the spectrum of the color purple will still be used in respect to the “Purple One,” Love Symbol #2, will be the official color across the brand he left behind. 

“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. 

The ‘Purple One’ made a statement and challenged cultural norms through both his well-known music and personal style. In addition to the Oscar, Prince won seven Grammy Awards and a Golden Globe Award for Purple Rain. Both “Purple Rain” and “1999” were entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and Prince was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, the very first year he was eligible. 

Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute said: "We are honored 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." 

Will this become the color of the year?  Sorry, the 2017 color of the year was already selected.  Maybe this color can win next year.

Learn about the Pantone color of the year.

FN PLATFORM Emerging Designers to Watch

As you know, FN PLATFORM will be taking place in Las Vegas this coming August 14th-16th, 2017. While there’s tons to be excited about with the upcoming show, one new area we wanted to give you a heads up on is the new ‘Emerging Designers’ showcase at FN PLATFORM. This is the debut of the showcase at FN PLATFORM and will feature six promising designers hand-selected by FN PLATFORM executives.  The showcase’ participating designers include: Tiannia Barnes, Becki Coackley, Anniel, Frou Frouz, Fringe by Ella & Rubi and Chelsea Paris. 

Becki Coackley

Becki Coakley is a shoe brand that was born from two desires:   to create finely detailed and striking shoes and to be a vessel for women to display their sensuality and elegance simultaneously. Becki sees the woman that wears the Becki Coakley shoe brand as one that is confident and isn’t afraid to be different by adding some flair to herself.  She is a go-getter that may have power meetings all day long but leaves to enjoy happy hour or a night out on the town.  She may also be a woman that goes from a lunch date to running errands all over town confidently wearing her Becki Coakley shoes. Becki Coakley combines simplistic, elegant, timeless, and eye catching details to make exquisite shoe designs for the sophisticated and chic woman.

Janie Bryant Vintage Costume Designer

WWDMAGIC is known as a destination for some of the hottest brand launches – from celebrities to bloggers to emerging designers. This year will be no different when renowned costume designer, Janie Bryant (previously of Mad Men) launches her latest collection with Unique Vintage and chats vintage and trends in the WWD Social House. 

Apparel Search has been lucky enough to gain access to an interview with Janie which was a quick Q&A.


You’ve been busy! Tell us about your new capsule collection with Unique Vintage and the upcoming series, The Last Tycoon?

I was so excited to discover Unique Vintage as they have beautiful retro-inspired styles in everything from wiggle dresses to sexy swimwear to chic prom looks. Their customer base is so engaged and loyal and we wanted to bring them something special. Working with Katie (the CEO) and the team there is amazing as we all have such a love of vintage and period design. This first collection is inspired by one of my favorite periods – the 1950’s – and includes inspirations from some of the favorites in my personal collection. I’m excited that the capsule is accessible to all at a great price point and available in sizes from XS to 4XL. 

The Last Tycoon just premiered on Amazon in July and the production is gorgeous – 1930’s Hollywood glamour with a terrific cast in Kelsey Grammar, Lily Collins and Matt Bomer. I was so fortunate to work with the creators, Billy Ray and Chris Keyser. I get my inspirations for all shows in three ways – the script, research and collaboration. The writers develop the characters, and through costume, I help bring them to life. My team and I do a lot of research in prep for any project, including old magazines, movies, newspapers, historical documents, catalogs, museums, biographies, photos, etc. We search on Etsy, EBay and Ruby Lane for ideas. Then, it is ultimately  a collaboration in design, along with the hair and makeup teams, the set design, and the creators of the show. I buy  from vintage stores, have the garments re-made or create my own designs to be accurate of the time period. 

How does your approach with The Last Tycoon differ from your work on ‘Mad Men’?

The KOBI collection emanates a European sensibility that fosters a soignée approach to dressing. Elaborate lace adorns chic off-the-shoulder tops and elegantly cut blouses. Sweeping cape sweaters, a statement shawl-collar coat, bell-sleeve jackets, and expertly tailored blazers are rendered in luxurious textiles to magnificent effect. Skillfully draped dresses and a perfectly fitted jumpsuit skim the body and accentuate the waist without being overly body conscious for an easy sophistication that is head-turning in its subtlety. Beautifully tailored pants round out the KOBI collection, and they receive the breathtaking treatments that are the sui generis hallmarks of the line. The collection boasts a rich color palette comprised of Bordeaux, navy and black with pops of periwinkle, white and a cerebral print that adds depth. 

Available on Macy's mobile app and macys.com, the KOBI collection ranges from $79 to $299, and will officially launch in 149 Macy's stores August 15.

Here is portion of a question and answer interview (between FN PLATFORM and Blair):

Blair Underwood
Congrats on the launch of your new collection, Q by Blair Underwood! How did this collaboration with Pasquale come about? Were you a fan of Pasquale’s before the collaboration? 

I did not know Pasquale prior to this collaboration. I was approached about the idea of creating a high-end shoe line with Pasquale, who is a master craftsman in the footwear arena. In recent years, I had a successful clothing line called, ‘The BU Collection.’ I enjoyed the creativity, artistry and challenge of the apparel business. From that experience, I remembered how important shoes were/are to customers. In many cases, more-so than the outfit itself. Shoes are the foundation of any ensemble, especially for menswear. I found this opportunity to be the next phase in my maturation and exploration into the world of fashion.

Did you always know you wanted to get into footwear?

Not until my experience with ‘The BU Collection.’ Also, after meeting Pasquale, I found that his expertise and passion for all things shoes, was infectious.
