TV show review: The Collection

Another Amazon Original show, The Collection is a very stylish look at Paris after WW2. We all think of Paris as the fashion capital of the world but after the war it was a very different place. Anything like fashion to many was a waste of resources better spent on things like food and clothing for children. Trying to bring French fashion back to the word was a tough sell.

This show deals with one family. Two brothers and their mother. One brother is the brother is the business man who is trying to save their house and the other is the designer with a taste for handsome and dangerous young men and an artists temperament. Mom is an overbearing aristocratic woman who wants to pamper the artist and tends to blame the businessman for all that goes wrong.

A slow starter but a involved story of passion and fashion. Worth a watch.
