COTY 2010

It's that -OTY time of year again: today, it's Pantone's COTY for 2010, which has been unveiled. They have chosen turquoise, which is my favourite colour and so I am pleased that wearing it next year will mean I am fashionable (not that I ever lose any sleep over this kind of thing). According to the press release:

Whether envisioned as a tranquil ocean surrounding a tropical island or a protective stone warding off evil spirits, Turquoise is a color that most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering, has appeal for men and women, and translates easily to fashion and interiors.

Universally flattering as it may be, as a clear spring with light blue eyes, turquoise is also one of my best colours and although I'm not interested in its anti-evil properties, the thought of warm, crystal clear, turquoise oceans and a land far, far away, as modelled by Monsieur E on our holiday to Cuba, is definitely an appealing one. Of course, even the gorgeous blue waters of Cayo Levisa, in which I swam, scuba dived and drank milk from coconuts, had their flaws but then jamais n'est parfait.
