…Desiree Kohan uniquely inhabits two worlds, with one foot planted in the realm of high fashion and the other on a trail blazed through the heart of the natural world.
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.
DES KOHAN is nestled in a 1920’s Miracle Mile warehouse, surrounded by L.A.’s art galleries and museums. Curated in the spirit of an art gallery with its own distinct point of view, the light-filled gem houses an unparalleled mélange of the world’s top collections and meticulously edited selections. The boutique emphasizes its belief in customer service by offering styling services from celebrated Hollywood stylists and complimentary alterations from a couture seamstress.
DES KOHAN is proud to give back through its unwavering support of The Jane Goodall institute (a global non-profit that empowers people to make a difference for all living things), Sea Shepard, and the Los Angeles’s Women’s Shelter.
