The colour is said to reflect the “prominence of spirituality, visionary thinking and the mysteries of the future”, according to the Pantone Color Institute.

Iconic musicians such as Prince, David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix were noted for bringing the shade into pop culture.

Beauty predictors expect to see matte purple dominating lips and nails while soft metallics will be used on the eyes.
