Meet your new everyday bag: the Coach Bandit Hobo

A new silhouette from the Coach 1941 Pre-Fall 2017 collection, the Bandit Hobo has just about everything going for it, from its effortless shape to luxe material and colourful options—all in a lightweight form, no less. What we love most about the roomy carrier though, is the detachable pouch in its middle compartment—just a snap to remove the overlay buttons and you’re good to go; strap it your way to carry it as a shoulder bag or a wristlet.


Here, Hunny Madu and De Fam’s Sophia Liana show us how to rock the Bandit Hobo in different ensembles (for different occasions):

For day: Hunny gives her all-black outfit a much needed spruce-up with a steel blue bag that gives off a surprisingly feminine finish. 

For night: Not one to stray away from prints, Hunny doubles up on the motifs by opting for a floral-print clutch to complete her look.

For day: Instead of the hobo, Sophia goes for a day of appointments with a fuss-free shoulder bag—in a rich burgundy hue for added interest.

For night: Sophia aces the boho flair by complementing her ditsy floral-print dress with a notice-me suede hobo. The leather details give it a texture clash.
