Think of Desert Hills as the closest thing the West Coast has to Woodbury Common. A few basic facts: It's near Palm Springs, the landscape surrounding it is actually very pretty, and it features a ton of high-end designer brands. The clothes that find their way to Desert Hill tend to be a little louder and more casual than anything on the East Coast, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Hit Saint Laurent Paris for fantastic boots, jackets, and tight-fitting rocker garb, Porsche Design for a leather jackets, and Gucci for a slim suits.
