Pantone have chosen two colours this year to represent their 'Colours of the Year' initiative. It's the first time they have picked a blend and they are Rose Quartz and Serenity. (Pantones 13-1520 & 15-3919 respectively). Whilst Pantone talk about mindfulness and gender blurring, I immediately think of the Caribbean and Barbados in particular. Bajan sunsets are early and bruised and pink beaches blush. These photographs from my archives go back as far as 1995. I can feel the salt in my hair and sand between my toes with the promise of a flying fish sandwich and four square.
