Carl Louisville

As the director for the Beverly Hills Prada Epicenter, Carl Louisville lives and breathes LA culture. From the trendy building he works in, which opens up to Rodeo Drive, to the restaurants he frequents, he has long become part of the Los Angeles city itself. And although Louisville was born in New Orleans, his influential position within the LA scene, which has built up over the last 20 years, has qualified him to tell us what’s haute about LA.
