The name comes to strike a visitor’s eye with a neon-lit flag signage, whereas the colour-encased glass storefront takes over the statement and looks like it is all set to sing the prelude of Yellow by Coldplay.
The pop-up retail takes a dip in the yellow hue– from flooring to interior decor, checkout counter and shelves–that revives the happy shopper inside every visitor, with the sunny character of the colour. The yellow mellow tickles the senses in a bold statement, whilst providing a vibrant monolithic backdrop that enables the clothes take the centre stage.
The hide and seek of simpler, cleaner lines leave the visitor afloat in the yellow continuum. The spatial shell may not have a meaning in itself but gives meaning and importance to the objects it encases.
The playful dynamic of this limited time pop-up’s retail experience comes forth to hum along:
I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called “Yellow”
-Yellow by Coldplay
The whole of the space talks about the colour personality of yellow—its mood and muse—to give a contemporary edge to the retail regularities in a place as evolving as New Delhi.
