The font for description environment can be changed by using the \setsansfont in koma classes. Is there a way to be more specific, like \addtokomafont{disposition} is for headings?

    I don't really understand. \setmainfont and \setsansfont are fontspec commands, they have nothing to do with the KOMA classes. To change the font of labels in the description environment, use \setkomafont{descriptionlabel}{<font commands}. Jun 14, 2014 at 20:02
  • @TorbjørnT. Sorry, I missed the command. Could you turn your comment into an answer?

See table 3.2 on page 55 in the English version of the KOMA-manual for a complete list of elements that can be changed with \setkomafont or \addtokomafont.

Here you'll find


labels, i. e., the optional argument of \item in the description environment (see section 3.18, page 106)

So use e.g. \addtokomafont{descriptionlabel}{...}.
