Here at planet Notion we appreciate art in all its forms, but nothing is better than pairing the tranquil alternative sounds of Marthas and Arthurs with the creation of the essential accessory…a handbag. Vocalist and designer Esther Keen’s fine, handmade Ester Porter bags crafted in East London, bring more to the table than just a trendy piece of hand candy. Drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of the English country side, these trendy and classic bags are perfect for both urban and rural settings. Made from carefully selected leather, these must-have bags are created from meticulous artisan techniques guaranteeing a practical and durable item. With retro styles for both women and men, this is definitely an accessory that you will want to have for the upcoming summer season.
Yet, designing stunning handbags isn’t the only thing that keeps this artist busy. A member of the band Marthas and Arthurs—the two Arthurs being Matt Heart and Tom Ball and the two Marthas being Tom’s sister, Esther and Mary Douglas—have recently released the new folky-alternative album ‘The Hit World of Marthas and Arthurs’. Featuring their flawless harmonies, and charming instrumentals, this is definitely one of those feel-good, late summer evening albums.
So take a look and have a listen! Great handbags and great music…who could have asked for a better combination?
