I didn't start to watch this one as I have other shows I want to watch that are on at the same time. Some nights there is a gold mine of good shows and other nights, eh.  N.

Yes, so do I.  It usually means I have to play "catch-up" later and watch the video on the PBS website.  No matter...it's a good afternoon break!  Woman Very Happy

"The Collection" on PBS

Message 6 of 6 (163 Views)

Did anyone catch "The Collection" on PBS following "Poldark" last Sunday night?  (10-8-2017)  What do you think???

 

It's something of a mystery, set in post-war Paris.  The clothes are fascinating.  There is a lot of B&W photography, a lot of "stop-action" and still shots, as well as the use of symbols and color.  The first episode uses a lot of green in the midst of the black & white...does it represent money...or the scramble to rebuild after the war?  Red shows up several times...anger?  Violence?  Murder?  The Sabines are a strange family and yet there's a closeness among them...very complicated individuals.  I'm hooked...both for the fashion and the circuitous storyline unfolding.  I'd love to hear what you have to say!  ~ Mimi

 

About the Show 2017

"World War II is over and Paul Sabine is restoring Paris as the fashion capital of the world. His dresses are a sensation, and only his shady past and an inconvenient
corpse block his way to success. Dressing up was never so dazzling—or dangerous.

The Collection is a story about the price of success, set during a pivotal moment in France’s history."

 

"The cast and creator of The Collection introduce you to the stylish, mysterious world of the post-war Paris fashion scene. The Collection starts Sunday, October 8th, 2017 at 10/9c on MASTERPIECE on PBS.   #TheCollectionPBS"
