Design Classics: Gitanes packet

After one of my regular ‘commenters’, Cayman Thorn remarked on my inclusion of Zippo lighters, which brought to mind, my mate Barry (again) who said that from a design standpoint, a packet of Gitanes was the perfect smoker’s kit!! This was a late night attempt to capture the elegance of the packet- hmm, must take more water with it. . .

One of the things I loved most about London were the five cigarette social packs. My visit to London came at a time when I was adhering to a social smoking regimen, and these things were God’s treaty with the devil as far as I was concerned.

Thank you for the mention, sir.

Any thoughts?
