In the 1960s Palm Beach depicted in Apple TV+’s newest series “Palm Royale,” appearances are everything. Sartorial decisions are central to the schemes of the show’s protagonist, Maxine Dellacourt (Kristin Wiig), who lies and cons her way through Florida’s country clubs in an effort to assimilate into high society.

It’s telling that one of the first giveaways of her lower class is the 1960s Gucci clutch she wears in one of the show’s first episodes. As one prospective friend Dinah (Leslie Bibb) tells her, it’s “lovely and certainly quality, but I’m sad to say it gives you away.”

“A friendship,” she continues, “won’t be in the cards.”

With fashion being the foremost indicator of this society’s haves and have-nots, it follows that costume designer Alix Friedberg (“Big Little Lies”) scoured authentic vintage for the show. Almost every scene bursts with loudly patterned caftans, statement sunglasses, clunky jewelry and zany headgear. The particularly fashion savvy will recognize most of the ensembles from retro runways, spanning designers from Pucci and Bill Blass to Malcom Starr and, yes, Gucci.

“It’s really tough to get things that don’t feel like they have 30, 40 years of wear on them—we got lucky,” Friedberg told Vogue about her styling process. “Everybody needed to look like they had just cut the tags off something. Certainly, nobody ever repeats anything. God forbid!”

In honor of the show’s covetable fashion, Friedberg partnered with the luxury consignment store The RealReal to curate an edit of “Palm Royale”-inspired pieces.
