Provocative and perplexing, notes of purple have long rendered an enigmatic complexity and range of expression. From preeminent roots in royalty to eccentric artistic ingenuities, this highly pigmented hue boldly declares a certain level of sophistication and unconventionality. Sashaying between rich fiery red and the bold depths of blue, the tension between warm and cool undertones evokes a challenging visual allure that is intricately dynamic in its relation to other tones and fearless in its application.
