We can always count on Des Kohan—that boutique off Wilshire Boulevard and around the corner from Wilshire Beauty Supply—for stocking minimalist femininity at its best. Spring/summer '08 is now in-store and brings with it labels with such a distinction, from locals such as Bare and Raven Kauffman handbags, Juan Carlos Obando and Pegah Anvarian, to further afield labels like Beatrez (shown right), Hussein Chalayan, Victor & Rolf, and Ritsuko Shirahama. Don't forget to check owner Desiree Kohan's Des Kohan line—the belts are particularly versatile. It's sumptuous glamour that's never overdone. [Racked Inbox]
