Panny 12-35mm. Why is it purple?

I'm playing around with a GH3 kit right now before I wrap it up as a gift.  I could'nt resist taking a peek and as it is a good friend receiving it ( with whom I share I lot of gear ) I know he won't mind me opening the box..  

But here's the thing.

The lens ; It's purple.  Not black.

And on the Panny body ( which is most definitely black ) it looks kinda weird.

Now my friend is a graphic designer, with a strong sense of design and aesthetics.

I'm sure it is an awesome camera and really, who cares about the design?  But on the basis of being into industrial design, the Panny is a bit of a dogs breakfast in design terms.

Looking forward to "borrowing" it from my friend once I have given it to him.
