    What do you get when a globetrotting trend-forecaster-turned-retailer teams up with a Mexico City-native jewelry maven? An uncommon treasure trove of gems that you'll yearn for, of course.

    Desiree Kohan of cult-coveted DES KOHAN boutique has consulted for the likes of Prada, Gucci, and Miu Miu, and her Miracle Mile shop is in such mad demand that it's never gone on sale (apologies to all of you bargain babes). In fact, she's already sold out of Spring '12 Alaia bags that never even hit the floor. Yeah, this is serious business.

    The perk of this allure is the cultivation of solid relationships with her artsy array of designers, leading to an uncanny knack for getting pieces designed exclusively for the destination outpost (you've really gotta know where you're going to find it). And this latest slew of beauts by Gabriela Artigas has us chomping at the (shark-toothed) bit! Chock-full of versatile earthy and vintage accessories you really won't find elsewhere, this collection (click through to take a peek!) may just make you a DES devotee.

    DES KOHAN, 671 Cloverdale Avenue (At Wilshire Boulevard); 323-857-0020.
