Storyline

Alberto (Miguel Ángel Silvestre) has been left to run a store called Velvet, one of the most prestigious fashion stores in Spain, by his late father. Velvet is a Spanish television series (English subtitles available on Netflix). It takes place in the 50's / 60's and displays the beautiful clothing and cars from that era. The main storyline of the show is the business decisions surrounding the continuation of the fashion store and the steamy love story of Alberto, heir of Galerías Velvet, and Ana (Paula Echevarría), who works as a seamstress there.

Visually beautiful yet frustrating at times
20 February 2015 | by bongoangolaSee all my reviews

The visual content of this series is superb. The fashion, architecture, cars are evocative of the period the series takes place in. The formal mannerisms, impeccable clothing, beautifully curated dresses and accessories lend an elegant high end look to the production. The wonderful regional Spanish accent imbues the dialog with a true time and place.

Even though the arc of the storyline is well thought out and the intrigue well peppered throughout, the main love story falls flat for me. You want to reach in and slap Ana and Alberto and tell them to get some balls and act like adults. This is especially true of Alberto. He seems childish emotionally but the series makes you believe that he is an accomplished person without really giving the audience a way to reconcile the two.

Some of the minor love stories work better. They come and go, ebb and flow to keep the story moving. They can be funny and sweet even if frustrating at times.

Beautiful, yes. Outstanding, it could be; but it falls short because of the relationship of the main characters.
