On August 18, 2018, Irvine Spectrum Center will celebrate the culmination of a $200 million reinvestment. The center will welcome a diverse collection of shops, including Laguna Beach jewelry brand Gorjana and San Clemente-based sock start‑up Stance.

Gorjana, known for its delicate necklaces, rings and bracelets made for layering, has stores in New York and California, including Fashion Island. Gorjana’s necklaces in particular are beloved by celebrities including Selma Blair, Jamie Chung and Vanessa Hudgens.

“Irvine Spectrum Center is constantly evolving, making it a premier shopping destination in Southern California,” said Gorjana Reidel, founder, president and creative director. “We’re thrilled to be a part of it.”

Stance is a popular sock brand that has sold more than 50 million socks worldwide, offering a broad selection that includes men’s and athletic performance socks, women’s and children’s socks and underwear. Stance also has a complete fan shop where MLB, NFL and NBA fans can tout their allegiance, as well as a subscription option that automatically replenishes socks and underwear.

These stores are among more than 30 new retailers, restaurants and entertainment options coming to Irvine Spectrum Center as part of its major reinvestment. The center also is introducing several boutiques unique to Orange County, along with an H&M flagship store and a Hello Kitty Cafe.
