In the spring of 2005, Desiree created her eponymous boutique in order to fuse her appreciation for exclusive, sought-after designers and her steadfast belief in one-on-one customer service. Since its launch, DES KOHAN has become a Los Angeles destination with an international reputation for stocking both high-end designers and affordable, accessible pieces.
DES KOHAN features established designers such as Azzedine Alaia, Hussein Chalayan, Sophia Kokosalaki, and Viktor & Rolf as well as emerging talents including Sharon Wauchob, Juan Carlos Obando, and Osman Yousefzada.
Many of the pieces in the store are exclusives, stemming from Desiree’s long-standing relationships with designers who create custom items for the boutique, and from seasonal collaborations with a rotation of renowned designers. In addition, the boutique offers a handpicked selection of vintage Chanel, Hermes, Gucci and Givenchy jewelry and home objects.
