    L.A. is a town that is all about the mix—high and low, new and old, understated and over-the-top all collide to create our city’s one-of-a-kind style. So, it would make perfect sense that our most stylish shop-owner, Des Kohan, would have a natural ability to blend cutting-edge design with old-world flare. Though Des is a clothing curator whose shop off of L.A.'s Miracle Mile is filled with high-end designers like Juan Carlos Obando, Mark Fast, and Azzedine Alaïa, she’s also a vintage-lover with a knack for turning her thrifty finds into beautiful pieces of furniture for her A-list boutique. To see how this entrepreneur-ess gets inspired by our fair city and channels Cali-cool into her insanely enviable wardrobe, we let Des play guide to her favorite and most inspiring local haunts—and take a style lesson or two from her outfits, too!
