S1.E1 Just You Wait and See


This high drama episode focuses on CHRISTIAN DIOR (Ben Mendelsohn) and COCO CHANEL (Juliette Binoche) designers attempting to conduct fashion business in the midst of Nazi rule in France. Both Dior and Chanel living distinct lives manuever their way to the parties of Nazi life. There is an eerie feel that is unique in comparison to the creative designers way of life that is taken over by military Arian egoism and killings.


The acting is pretty good. The ability to learn about insider fashion business way of life is intriguing making good writing. The plot of Nazi rule disrupting the flow of the fashion world in France is unique. I am hoping the creative world supercedes military rule as the series moves forward. In the era of creatives, this episode is recommended to give new respect for our military and defense capabilities in comparison to the Nazi's.
