PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON POST WW2 SET FASHION HOUSE TV SERIES 'THE COLLECTION' WITH TOM RILEY AND RICHARD COYLE!

'THE COLLECTION' WW2 SET 
FASHION SERIES WITH TOM RILEY AND RICHARD COYLE
Here's something we are definitely looking forward to in the future: lavish new period set drama series, the first one ever from UK Amazon, THE COLLECTION set in a post WW2 fashion house with cast lead by our beloved Tom Riley and Richard Coyle! Written and executive produced by Oliver Goldstick (Desperate Housewives, Lipstick Jungle) the series has already been sold to national televisions around Europe and today you can enjoy some of the gorgeous new photos which have arrived to us recently! As you can expect the drama will be filled with stylish and luxurious fashion of the 1947 French capital!

IT'S NOT WHAT THEY'RE WEARING BUT WHAT THEY'RE COVERING UP
The eight part series is the story of an illustrious Paris fashion house, emerging from the dark days of the Nazi Occupation, now ushering in a new golden age of design and business. Centred on two very different brothers, the drama exposes the grit behind the glamour and the treachery beneath the trappings of this empire, and all who work there.

RICHARD COYLE IS THE BOSS
Our dear British star Richard Coyle is returning again to historical genre after the godawful 'Crossbones' two years ago playing Paul Sabine, the couturier with a romantic vision that he hopes will resuscitate a beleaguered, post war Paris. Ambitious, dashing and street savvy, he is a beguiling figure who’s climbed a long way from his scrappy beginnings.

TOM RILEY IS GAY GENIUS
That irresistibly handsome devil Tom Riley (from 'Da Vinci’s Demons' whose almost entire crew is working on this series as well) takes on the role of Paul’s brother Claude Sabine, the true but hidden genius behind the Paul Sabine label. He is a rebellious, romantic spirit, forced to hide his homosexuality during the Occupation, who’s traded a public face for personal freedom.

FRANCES DE LA TOUR STARS
Their formidable mother, the scheming matriarch Yvette Sabine, is played by Frances De la Tour (who was wonderful in ITV's sitcom 'Vicious') — a woman who will stop at nothing to use her sons to help achieve her own thwarted ambitions. Meryl Streep's daughter Mamie Gummer is Helen Sabine, Paul’s American wife, an ex-pat who’s called Paris home for over a decade. Jenna Thiam  is Nina, the working class daughter of the Maison’s chief seamstress and the unexpected beauty who becomes the iconic face of the label. James Cosmo is Jules Trouvier, the silent partner who bankrolls the Sabine.

    1. I think so too, Masy, especially since it has already been sold to a number of big TV stations around Europe and French TV is cooperating with Amazon UK on production.

  6. "It's not what they're wearing, but what they're covering up," is a great blurb! Sounds like a promising series.

  9. Glad the photos I worked hard to find and share were useful to you, but it would have been polite to say where you got them. Especially since 4 of them have my watermark on them.

    1. All photos from this post and all other of our posts have been found through Google photo search not on any particular site. First time we even hear of your site, dear.
      If they have a watermark then people will clearly see who originally distributed them, so what's the problem then?
      You can't really go around web saying things like this unless you took the photos yourself.

  10. Oh, dear, I had no idea you could just take stuff via Google, not say where it came from and no-one would mind. Thanks for clarifying that. Dear. I'll know in future. My mistake, dear.
