Here's a reminder that Pantone's color of the year 2018 is PURPLE in all its shades of glory.
 Especially ultra VIOLET.

The dearly departed songster known as Prince would have had you "laughing in purple rain, bathing in  purple rain" but I think a little shot of purple goes a long way.

 So what is the difference between the color purple and Violet? Violet appears in the visible light spectrum (rainbow) ,whereas purple is a mix of red and blue. Whilst violet is not as intense as purple, generally speaking the names are interchangeable and the meaning of the color is similar.

Purple/Violet is a secret mystical color worn by catholic priests during exorcism and while hearing confession during Advent. It is believed to have a calming effect with healing powers.

From a color psychology point of view, purple/violet promote harmony, mental balance, psychic abilities and spiritual enlightenment.
The color purple is specifically associated with royalty and nobility, creating an impression of luxury, wealth and extravagance.

At Callanan hats, we have some adorable caps in purple, that will have you humming "PURPLE RAIN" all the way to and from work.
