Foil Me Fuses Art Deco & Pop Art to present the Stella foil. Paying homage to a globally adored pet, the canine, Foil Me’s latest offering in collaboration with Mark David of the UK’s Mark David Salon, The Stella, is an artful fusion of Art Deco and Pop Art design that will have salons barking up conversations.
Featuring Foil Me’s premium signature embossing, The Stella has been designed to capture Mark David’s love for Art Deco, his family and his gorgeous Cocker Spaniel, Stella. All elements are integral in Mark’s life, meticulously illustrated and graphically designed by Foil Me artists Emily Ciardiello and Chelsea Winter.
“I really enjoyed working with Mark David; he is remarkably talented and his artistic vision is clearly reflected in his award-winning salon. I was so honoured and incredibly excited to illustrate Stella – her energy was captivating,” says Emily.
With Mark David’s salon screaming luxury and his apparent affinity for elegant design, it was important for the Foil Me team to design a foil that complemented his salon, eliciting the same feelings of decadence and art yet capturing the personal connection Mark wanted the foil to have.
Says Emily, “The gorgeous cocker spaniel, Stella, was the first element we created before adding the other features. The parquetry background is actually the letters of Mark David’s name and the flowers, drawn by Chelsea, represent his sister, niece, grandfather and grandma. It is our most personal foil to date, but one we feel will resonate globally.”
For Chelsea, bringing Mark’s vision to life was incredibly rewarding yet challenging. “I had the opportunity to create the parquetry-inspired background for the foil, and I hand drew each of the symbolic flowers that adorn the box’s exterior. The Stella is one of the most intricate and complex foil projects we have completed; I am so overjoyed at the result,” says Chelsea.
And for Mark, everything about the foil represents him: “Wow – what an experience! From our initial chat to seeing the final design, the Foil Me family have been incredible to work with! The design is insanely good and personal – it’s my gorgeous Stella, the blue flowers represent my family, and the Art Deco is the salon. I honestly can’t wait to start using them in-salon and share my story with clients as I use them. I am thrilled to have my own custom foil!” States Mark.
