Espadrilles, the humble Spanish rope-soled shoe, have been creeping their way into fashion’s upper echelon for a few years now. Luxury brands like Chanel have ignited huge fervor among fashion’s elite bloggers the last year or two for their premium versions of their canvas and leather espadrilles. Now everybody else is jumping on the shoe wagon, too!
To celebrate Irvine Spectrum Center’s 20th Anniversary, this showcase is a salute of 20 years of style from OC’s iconic fashion brands including Hurley and Vans, and from the center’s marquee stores: Macy’s, Tilly’s, Active Ride Shop and more.
