    To celebrate New York Design Week, Gallery R’Pure will be presenting work from a group of 10 critically acclaimed US based designers. This group invites its audience to revisit the objects and symbols that have forged the American landscape as seen through the eyes of their creators. Each piece is a personal interpretation of some aspect of American life, be it celebratory, critical or simply observational. The exhibition intends to question what the American life is, whether real or perceived. Showcase designers include: Lindsey Adelman, Brad Ascalon, Joe Doucet, Sebastian Errazuriz, Josée Lepage, Paul Loebach, Frederick McSwain, Alissia Melka-Teichroew, Marc Thorpe, David Weeks

    For the Love It or Leave It Show, Alissia Melka-Teichroew is presenting a Tote Series.

    More about the Tote Series:
    It goes without saying that a product must be functional, but beauty and proportion are essential too. The Love It or Leave It tote is a meditation on the nature of consumption, a reminder that beauty serves a purpose just as much as portability or containment do, and an exploration of why function tends to have greater value than aesthetics on the United States market, in particular.

    With the Love It or Leave It tote I have created a functional object, but also an object of desire. It is a high-functioning bag that consists of a single massive pocket with a handle that can be held in two ways: over the shoulder or in one hand. In the row of four totes presented here, each piece is based on a single paradigmatic form and features more pockets, zippers and handles than the one before it—ad absurdum—until functionality becomes over-functional, rendering the bag useless in the end.

    White leather prototypes are made in America by Portland Garment Factory
