Bonjour Gloria,
Here is the lesson that addresses this exact scenario:
"Des" becomes " de/d' " in front of adjectives preceding nouns (French Partitive Articles)">"Des" becomes " de/d' " in front of adjectives preceding nouns (French Partitive Articles)

In short, des is the contracted version of de + les .
Bonne chance.
