Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau (BHCVB) has partnered with global media brand Monocle to produce two original films that bring the city’s inspiration to life through the lens of two creators who call Beverly Hills home.

The first short film profiles London-born Adrien Sauvage, founder and creative mind behind House A. Sauvage, whose inventive collections have been influenced by his Ghanaian and Nigerian roots with unique-yet-wearable fashion, bespoke jewelry, and exclusive homewares. With a second outpost in Beverly Hills, Sauvage reveals how the heritage and culture etched into the city’s DNA serves as his ongoing muse. “I moved from London to Beverly Hills, and I think it allowed me to dream,” said Sauvage. “There’s so much space and texture. It’s a melting pot for creativity.”

The second film spotlights David Alhadeff, founder of contemporary design gallery The Future Perfect. Alhadeff, who relocated to Beverly Hills from New York, reveals how the city helped inspire Casa Perfect, an art gallery housed within a 1971 Beverly Hills mansion designed by local architect Raul F. Garduno. “Art brings appreciation for cultures and invites the opportunity for conversation in the community,” remarked Alhadeff.

Through these stories, Beverly Hills seeks to inspire a new generation of travelers to visit the famed city. “These compelling narratives challenge the traditional notions of luxury and reveal something new and unexpected in Beverly Hills,” said Julie Wagner, CEO of BHCVB. “We hope each story gives those who long to travel again a new reason to visit our city.”

Every year, Beverly Hills draws millions of global travelers to its iconic hotels, storefronts, restaurants, gardens, and art galleries. While there are no signs of an immediate recovery from the pandemic, the destination continues to dialogue with an ever-evolving and diverse luxury audience ensuring it remains front-of-mind to the next generation of travelers inspired by a renewed sense of discovery.
