Yellow Lighting Illuminates Le Père Store in New York

Le Père has used tubular lighting to create a bright yellow glow inside this men’s apparel store on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

The first flagship for cult fashion label, Le Père, occupies a 1,000-square-foot (93-squaremetre) corner unit on Orchard Street.


Utilising the store’s large exposure to the street, Le Père opted to create an interior that would be just as impactful from the exterior as it is once inside. The design studio’s approach was to leave the majority of the space white, allowing the boldly patterned clothing to stand out, then highlighting the fitting rooms using bright yellow lighting and surfaces. A structural column in the centre of the store encased in a translucent box is also fitted with lights to give off a sunny glow.


This yellow aura is immediately apparent from the street and is meant to entice passersby to step inside. Neon lighting has seen a resurgence in retail and other commercial interiors of the past year, appearing everywhere from a Brooklyn cafe to a Calgary chicken shop.
