THE COLLECTION is a gripping entrepreneurial fable set in France just after the Second World War. An ambitious designer is tasked to restore Paris' supremacy as the haute couture capital. His fresh vision will usher in a new romantic era lifting the post-war gloom and paving the way for optimism and romance. But can this business, spearheaded by two clashing brothers survive meteoric success? Dark secrets threaten to topple this empire at any moment; internal rivalries and betrayals, hateful bargains made to survive the Nazi occupation, and the twisted secret behind the master's success. The staff of the atelier survived one devastating war, but another looms, where personal battles and passionate love stories set family against family and the past against the future.

Excellent Season 1, can't wait for Season 2
10 January 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Excellent Season one can't wait for Season two. Wonderful cast and brilliant acting by all of those involved. Very true to life after the Second World War when fashion houses desperately needed to make a comeback; which of course they did. The intriguing stories running alongside the fabulous new fashions portray what might have been happening at that time and how some people were trying to cope by hiding their secrets and lies. The new and glamorous styles shown were an attempt to give people something to look forward to after years of suffering.

A difficult time when people were trying to get their lives back together and put the horrors of the past behind them. I am really looking forward to the next season and hope they won't keep us waiting too long.
