HISTORY BOY: The Brits love nothing more than history, and so it’s only fitting that Giles Deacon will take to the Orangery at London’s Kensington Palace on Oct. 22 to show a clutch of designs from his archive that draw on an 18th-century aesthetic. The show, called “Georgian Fashion Remix,” is part of “Glorious Georges,” a year of exhibitions and events held at Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace and Kew Palace to mark the 300th anniversary of the German Hanoverian line of monarchs’ access to the British throne, which began with George I in 1714. Kensington Palace said the show will highlight “the surprising and sometimes subtle ways” that Deacon has woven 18th-century influences into his collection, such as the pannier-style silhouettes of his fall 2007 collection and the brocade gowns he sent out for fall 2012. And to accessorize Deacon’s designs, a number of Stephen Jones hats will appear in the show.
