THE GREAT EROS
The Great Eros is a lifestyle brand and marketplace embodying love and connection. Conceived over a bottle of wine, couple Emilio Ramirez and Christina Viviani had a vision to create a space that felt warm, airy, and sensual with a yin and yang balance of masculine and feminine energies. Influenced by minimalist architecture, abstract art, modernism and how these areas intersect with design, the brick and mortar store is headquartered in Brooklyn attracting a global clientele. It is a collaborative vision, curated with like-minded brands and artists who embody an ethos of sensuality, ritual, ambiance, and quality. Christina Viviani designs The Great Eros collection from the first layer that touches your skin to the outermost details you present to the world. She creates for the modern individual: effortless, artistic, nuanced, decisive. The collection is made in Italy with a family owned factory and uses both old world and innovative techniques resulting in superb quality. The result manifests as an array of garments and objects effortless in sentiment and timeless in appeal.
This multi-faceted men’s shop and creative space is located in the historic Third Ward neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI. Fun fact: it is home to the award-winning Third Ward RiverWalk and the Milwaukee Public Market. So, we’ve sold you on the area now hear us out on the boutique. Milworks features a well-curated selection of men’s apparel, footwear, apothecary, books, magazines and every doo-dah in between. Fair warning: this is the kind of place you can’t just leave with one amazing piece but rather five.
