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.
