Based loosely on the founding of the fashion house Dior, The Collection is high drama and high fashion in post-war Paris. Stitching together the glamorous and extravagant fashions of the late 1940s with murder intrigue and betrayal, this 2016 drama follows the rise of the Sabine family’s fashion house Paul Sabine Couture. But with ruthless businessman Paul (Richard Coyle) at the helm and Claude (Tom Riley) designing all the clothes for the fledgling couturier, the brothers’ volatile relationship could bring about the downfall of the empire.
Packed with powerhouse performances, this sumptuous drama also stars Vanity Fair’s Frances de la Tour, Meryl Streep’s daughter Mami Gummer, SS-GB’s James Cosmo and W1A’s Sarah Parish.
