Leading casual clothing brand, Weird Fish, has launched its limited edition ‘Purple Crane’ T-shirt as homage to Prince as the first anniversary of the iconic musician’s death approaches on Friday April 21.

The bird themed T-shirt designed by artist Steve Bright, is the sixth in a series of special edition shirts by Weird Fish in support of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), an initiative which has raised more than £40,000 for the charity since January 2015.

Previous special edition designs include ‘Lord of the Wings,’ ‘Darth Wader,’ ‘Harrier Potter and the Deathly Sparrows,’ ‘Raiders of the Lost Lark’ and ‘Cranespotting.’

‘Purple Crane’ went on sale on Tuesday March 7 for £20, with £5 from each sale being donated to the RSPB. The T-shirt is available in Barbary Red, Snow White and Washed Blue.

John Stockton, managing director at Weird Fish, said: “The success of our limited edition charity t-shirts relies on excellent design, great quality and of course a good pun.

“When we launched a competition last year to find the next artist to join our design team and come up with the next charity T-Shirt, we were so impressed with the three final designs that we ended up inviting all three artists to work with us.

“Purple Crane was one of these designs – with the anniversary of Prince’s death coming up, we think it is one his fans will really appreciate.”

 ‘Purple Crane’ will be available nationwide from Weird Fish’s 13 retail stores or online, with stockists including Debenhams, Cotswold Outdoor, Haskins and Blacks Leisure.
