Cud­dle Bag Come­back

No, you haven’t been tele­ported back to 2006; hobo bags are back, only this time they’re cool and cud­dly

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

Maybe it’s the change in weather or per­haps it’s the grown-up equiv­a­lent of go­ing back to school. Or, most likely, it’s our in­sa­tiable sar­to­rial ap­petite.

Re­gard­less, there’s just some­thing about this time of year (read: the en­tire autumnal sea­son) that has us psy­cho­log­i­cally pro­grammed to shop. That’s what we’re telling our­selves any­way.

And what item says ‘I got this’ bet­ter than a cult bag? None, that’s what. Handy that, as the #throw­back hobo bag has hit the big time again – and it’s not hard to see why… Loewe, Gucci, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Ralph Lau­ren… the list of de­sign­ers who res­ur­rected the style for AW16 goes on. And thanks to JW An­der­son, it’s huge for SS17 too…

No one wants to call it a hobo bag – we like to think it was meant to be boho but a typo oc­curred. Ei­ther way, its ori­gins are mys­te­ri­ous. And that’s sexy.

It’ll re­mind you of your youth. For those too young to re­mem­ber it the first time round, know that in 10 years you’ll feel ma­jorly nos­tal­gic.

Roomy enough for your lap­top, per­sonal phone, work phone, make-up bag, a Mars bar and gym kit, it’s the most sen­si­ble bag of all time.

The rounded shape makes it su­per-cud­dly (hence the name). We haven’t wanted to hold some­thing so close to our bod­ies since David Beck­ham.

Speak­ing of the Beck­hams, Posh needs an hon­ourable men­tion for her life­time ded­i­ca­tion to the hobo bag…
