Newsflash: there is no official shade of Rose designated by the Church, nor has there ever been. The reason for this is rather simple: only in the last century did the process of dyeing fabric become sufficiently sophisticated to ensure that much the same shade of a colour emerged from one batch of fabric dyeing to another. Previous to that, dyes were derived from plants etc., made up with a great deal of labour.
Many different colours have been deemed by the Church as acceptable as liturgical rose. Some of these are a salmon shade; some a silvery-pink, almost mushroom-colour; some close to what we would call Bishop's purple or fuchsia; and some red with overtones of gold.
Another thing is certain: Bubblegum Pink is not Rose, nor has it been a traditional variation for use on these days. Whilst not intending to get into the argument as to whether the use of a such a vibrant pink is a fitting colour for a man to wear, "Bubblegum Pink" certainly manifests a lamentable lack of liturgical good taste. Sadly, pink-coloured vestments, purporting to be Rose, are becoming increasingly commonplace and now even appear at Papal Masses.
Featured in this post is the vestment shewn above, made for a returning customer in the Borromeon style. The vestments are made from a beautiful English silk damask and the orphrey is formed from a Puginesque braid in shades of burgundy, red and ash-grey, designed by and made especially for the Studio.
