A gripping saga of buried secrets about a tight-knit family determined to rebuild their crumbling couture empire in postwar Paris. Paul Sabine seeks to stake a claim in the top tiers of the Paris fashion as the city poises itself to reclaim the title of fashion capital of the world, but he encounters obstacles in the forms of his past, his conniving mother’s actions and the competitive environment of the industry. His brother Claude, meanwhile, longs for more recognition of his artistic contributions to the Sabine house, but his efforts are thwarted by his dominating family and his own anti-social behaviour.
