Versailles

We are watching the second series of Versailles and loving the costumes!

Versailles is the story of Louis XIV, the King who built that monumental palace, and the first series in 2015/ 16 took us into the lives of the court as the building started. Full of intrigue and politics, the series is not pleasant viewing at times because of its portrayal of the brutality of the time, but the costumes are detailed and amazing. (You can read an interview from 2015 with the costume designer, Madeline Fontaine here). We in the UK can catch up with the series on iPlayer.
