Bonjour Gloria,
Here is the lesson that addresses this exact scenario:
Using ''de / d' '' instead of 'des' in front of adjectives preceding nouns (partitive article)">Using ''de / d' '' instead of 'des' in front of adjectives preceding nouns (partitive article)

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