The setting of the Netflix series, Velvet Colección, is a fashion design house in 1960s Barcelona. The series is in Spanish. I had several years of la clase de Español in school, but am not fluent. I understand sporadic phrases supplemented by body language. Regardless of the language barrier, I’m watching every minute of every episode because of the super cool 1960s dresses, the interior decor of the offices and homes, and the catchy music.
Velvet Colección is a spin off of ‘Velvet‘, a series about a 1950s fashion design enterprise based in Madrid.
The Velvet Colección story is one I’m sure I would enjoy, so I’m trying to follow as much of it as I can, despite the language barrier. But, it’s the 1960s dresses, the decor and the music that keep me coming back to watch more episodes, to be inspired to make my own dresses reminiscent of that time.
There are supposed to be three seasons of Velvet Colección. According to Wikipedia they’re stopping at three. Netflix is only offering Season 1 at the moment. When I finish with Velvet Colección, I’m looking forward to watching Velvet, for lots of lovely 1950s fashion.
