News just in: Smoking is – allegedly – cool again. Thanks to Cigfluencers and its ilk on Instagram, we’re being subjected to the great and glam of Hollywood and their smoking habits. From Paul Mescal and Natalie Portman sharing a fag break to Chloe Sevigny in Charlie XCX’s ‘360’ video, the vibe is knowingly decadent and deviant. We’re all aware that smoking kills, stains your teeth and gives you foul breath. But those long white sticks drooping from a fingertip are indelibly linked in our brains as the height of old-school sophistication. I mean – Marlene Dietrich!

Onto the merch.

It’s not all about the cigarettes. The accompanying paraphernalia is just as coveted. Can we say vintage Elsa Peretti bean lighter? 1920s Van Cleef cigarette case? Hermès cigarette box? Adding to the appeal is the fact that these products are multi-use. An ashtray* can function as a trinket tray. A cigarette case can be a minaudière. It’s symbolic of more extravagant times, yet your Etsy cigarette box can store vitamins or mints, allowing you to channel your inner old money heiress from the comfort of your zone 3 rental. It’s a vibe and yes, I’m here for it.
