The Collection: Season 1 Reviews

February 4, 2019
This show may be as beautiful to look at as the clothes are, but there are flaws all over the place.
June 22, 2018
The action pole vaults all over the place and loses drama and impact.

The Collection doesn't shy away from violence and conspiracy. While often a sumptuous watch, it too often strays into the gaudy.

The Collection, set amid the resurgent fashion industry of postwar Paris, will become a guilty pleasure for many once it starts rolling down the runway, zipping, tugging and pulling itself together.

The show is overcrowded with mysteries, mysteries that may be intentionally but seem quite unintentionally muddy.
March 14, 2017
Beautiful visuals in emotionally flat period fashion drama.

If The Collection had been satisfied to be a show about fashion, I would be recommending it heartily. Instead, the murky and unnecessary string of overwrought mysteries makes it sadly skippable.

Fault the writing and direction as The Collection strives for dark and brooding but rarely keeps it up for long.
February 10, 2017
Overall, The Collection is a visually and conceptually arresting drama that shows potential - if only it would deliver more on the inherent emotion of its subjects.

The Collection can be pretty to look at, but first impressions will not lead to second glances.

It's glossy and murky at the same time, and mostly terrific, again in terms of (even looser) history.

It's likely that this ambitious drama may pass the British public by.
