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. Written by Amazon Studios

Glad I stuck with it.
5 November 2016 | by mariamatthews-32949See all my reviews

Although I found the first episode a little heavy going I was glad I stuck with it and found with each episode, I became more and more entranced with this intriguing tale. It was beautifully filmed and sensitively acted by a first rate cast. The costumes were exquisite and the period styling a sheer joy to observe. It had an upstairs downstairs quality similar to that of Downton Abbey, with story lines being developed in both camps. Each episode drove the story forward nicely adding layers of intrigue as as the plot thickened so the characters gradually became increasingly more interesting as the season progressed. By the end of Episode 8 I was completely hooked and left longing to learn more. I can't wait for season 2.
