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.

Planty of depth
4 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Fairly intelligent and with plenty of depth after a slightly shaky start. Excellent photography and costumes - a lot of fun. There are certainly a few minor plot holes and implausibilities, but they really don't matter. Acting is pretty good too on the whole.

The main thing here is the mood that is set - and it does set that well.

We have been watching this in parallel with the Halcyon - which I suppose - is supposed to have a similar feel. The latter by contrast is shallow and wooden. I'm glad that it is set in France but (apart from a few minor tokens) there is no attempt to have fake French accents - a good decision by the Directors. Overall, just what is needed to lie in bed with the wife at 11pm.
