Leanin’ Lipstick

Lipstick

It’s no doubt that package design just adores the Leaning Tower of Pisa.   We have Liqueur Pisa, the Leaning Tower of Peas and even Pisa inspired thimbles that come in their town boxes.  As a profound lover of lipstick, this 1950’s lipstick case by jewelry designer Louis Nichilo takes the take.  Here is the cutest remark from Travel Magazine, Circa: 1962.  “For women: If what you’ve always wanted is a lipstick case that looks like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, you can have it now. Gold plated, three inches high, with colored stones for decoration, it is made to fit all standard lipstick refills, costs 6.000 lire ($9.60) at Louis Nichilo, Via Sistina 42 In Rome.”
