Would “rose” be an invariable color?
Would it be correct to say, ”J’aime des roses rose!”
This question relates to:French lesson "Compound colour names and colour names derived from things are invariable"
18 June 2018
according to the lesson (Colour descriptions change according to gender and number (adjectives)) the correct way to say it is:
J'aime les roses roses. -- I love pink roses.
In general, colors derived from object names such as orange (an orange) or marron (le marron/the chestnut) stay immutable. However, the color rose (pink) does vary, even though it seems to derive from a real object, too.
