L.A. Designers share their spring style obsessions
It may be wet and rainy out, but spring merchandise will start hitting store shelves before we know it. We asked several local designers what they're dreaming about for the new season and what they'll be wearing once the weather warms up. From Chanel clogs to Kitchen Aid mixers, see what gets these designers' creative juices flowing.

The new flap bag from Chanel
Jersey lined white blazer from Kova & T's spring 2010 line. "It's so comfortable and makes any outfit look more interesting and a bit fancier."
A silver KitchenAid mixer. "They make a kitchen look more refined, and I'll bake goodies for my friends."
