Enny Monaco Pop-Up Concept Store by Marilyn Katsaris in Mykonos, Greece
From July 1st to September 1st 2017, the upscale, multi-brand store, Enny Monaco, is expanding its regular presence on the island with a Pop-Up Concept Store in the Matoyiannia neighborhood's neoclassical, Venieri Mansion. This will be the first time in nearly a century that the mansion will be opened to the public and its usually belle époque-era interiors shall be transformed with enviable Deloudis furniture for the duration of the event under the creative direction of Greek interior designer Marilyn Katsaris. Yatzer’s creative director Costas Voyatzis, is curating an art exhibition at the Pop-Up, "Today You Are in Paradise With Me," and is bringing together an intoxicating array of Greek and International artists to enthuse Mykonos' worldly crowd of visitors and to complement the shifting array of designer fashions (such as Mary Katrantzou, Aquazzura, Jonathan Simkhai, Christian Louboutin) that will be sold in succession in the concept Pop-Up. The art is an homage to the utopian concept of "Paradise," a celebratory destination that merges the celestial and the terrestrial, where tropical colors explode into an array of energy and there is no distinction between races and borders, between the tangible and the intangible. Each artist has thus been chosen because they represent a part or the whole of the paradisiacal concept.
