Storyline

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.

Overcrowded, Overdressed, under-lit and muddled
3 September 2016 | by (Cambria, California) – See all my reviews

This production reeks of effort: it tries too hard, lacks elegance -- which is ironic for a drama centered around haute couture. Several main stories are crowded by secondary characters with their own stories. It defies the main rule of sophisticated attire: a strong statement with judicious embellishment.

Much of the pilot is shot in dark rooms, hallways and streets. Whomever designed the sets and lighting fail to highlight and direct the eye. Moving and static shots are lost in the shadows, when such atmospheres are opportunities for the best methods perfected in the film noir era. If the cinematography in this production was translated to black-and-white, much of it would be ink blots.

Unfortunately much of the dialogue is expository because there are so many stories being told the characters have to think aloud in order to be followed.

In the end, choices weren't made, EVERYTHING was piled on. The result is a pilot that can barely move under the weight.
