The wait is finally over, Palm Royale is officially streaming on Apple TV+ as of Wednesday, March 20th and if the first look images are anything to go by, the fashion world is about to see a lot of headbands, flower power prints and platform wedges.

Late last year, Apple gave fans and fashion lovers alike a sneak peek into the Palm Royale world. In the carousel of stills posted it’s made very clear that the aesthetic for this show is awe-inspiring. Think Slim Aarons meets Olivia Wilde’s Don't Worry Darling and you’ve hit the nail on the head.

What is Palm Royale about?

Loosely based on the book Mr. and Mrs. American Pie, Palm Royale is a comedy series set in 1969. The story follows Maxine Simmons, played by Kristen Wiig, on a quest to secure a seat at America’s most exclusive, fashionable and treacherous table: Palm Beach high society.

As per the series description, Maxine’s ambitious adventure leads down various paths, "attempting to cross that impermeable line between the haves and the have-nots. Palm Royale asks the same question that still baffles us today: 'How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to get what someone else has?'"

Who stars in Palm Royale?

Playing alongside Kristen Wiig, who is most famously known for her role in the blockbuster hit Bridesmaids, is our favourite 'nepo-baby' Kaia Gerber. Usually seen on the catwalks of fashion month, sporting some of the world's most famous brands, Kaia has recently taken a back seat to pursue a career in acting. We can’t be 100% sure if it has anything to do with her Elvis Presley boyfriend Austin Butler, but we can assume that he had a small part in her new career venture, even if it is just running lines.

The star-studded cast doesn't stop there. Laura Dern has traded in her Big Little Lies power suit for a bohemian kaftan, Puerto Rican singer and songwriter Ricky Martin dons a James Bond-esque tux and Hollywood royalty Allison Janney cameos as what we can only hope is the Lisa Vanderpump of the high society trailblazers.

Call it a coincidence that eBay has reported a major surge in Palm Royale-themed searches over the last few days, leading us to believe that we're not the only ones dusting off our floral frocks, headbands and Mary Jane's. According to the e-commerce platform, searches for '60s' increased by 50% over the last week or so, whereas searches for 'florals' have skyrocketed by 120% and 'shift dresses' by 55%. 

EBay’s Pre-Loved Style Director, Amy Bannerman stated that “60s fashion is iconic and an era the fashion industry revisits time and time again. I’m excited to see the fashion that will be showcased throughout this series. With shows like this, we often see fans really wanting the opportunity to re-create the looks they’re seeing on screen while exploring iconic styles from the past." 

Move over cowgirl core, we're leaning into Kaia's '60s-inspired nail artist aesthetic this spring.
