    Hi all,

    Could you help me in finding out how "de toutes les couleurs" is said in the sentence "Il a acheté une chemise de toutes les couleurs"?

    Thank you.

    This reminds me of Joseph's technicolor coat. In slang, you might use psychedelic. Of course, multicolored is the standard term.
