Here is an example from the lesson:
Elle a un sac orange et deux écharpes orange. --> She has an orange bag and two orange scarves. As can be noticed in the example from the lesson Aurélie has given us, in plural phrases «orange» does NOT change form to agree in quantity, i.e. un sac orange and deux écharpes orange.
If one returns to the lesson and reviews the chart, the color «marron» is another case in point where the spelling does NOT change to agree in quantity.
There are a number of exceptions to agreeing colors with the noun they refer to.The most notable one is that colors with the names of real objects (as, e.g., orange, marron etc.) remain unchanged.
Therefore the exception lies not with vêtements but with orange. -- Chris.
Bonjour Stuart !
Colours orange and marron are indeed specific cases, which are explained in more detail in the following lesson:
However, I do agree that this particularity needed to be highlighted more clearly in the lesson, and thanks to your feedback, I've now updated the lesson to make it clearer :)
Bonne journée !
