Pantone announced Ultra Violet as its 2018 Color of the Year Thursday. The bright shade choice was inspired by the cosmos about artists like Prince, David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix.

“The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today,” Laurie Pressman, the vice president of the Pantone Color Institute said in a release.

For travelers looking to keep up on the purple trend, here is some luggage to bring some color to baggage claim.

This Kenneth Cole Reaction bag fits with many carry-on standards.

This three-piece set of American Tourister bags have a soft shell and come in different sizes so you can bring an Ultra Violet bag no matter how much you have to pack.
