Angela Spencer (a.s.i.s.)
Born and raised in the rural countryside of England, Angela Spencer finds
inspiration for her wearable art in the quaint and history-rich home of her
youth. This Anglo-influence combined with a degree from FIT makes
Angela’s designs unique and timely—a “brilliant” blend of old world sophistication
and new world urban cool. But that’s just a small part of the equation when it
comes to Angela Spencer’s Irresistible Stuff. Founded in 2004 in Brooklyn, New
York, a.s.i.s. has developed an international customer base and appeared in
publications including Lucky, New York Magazine, Wall Street Journal & Time Out New York to name a few.
Everything that goes into an a.s.i.s. product is carefully chosen by Angela
herself, handmade in the United States, and eco-friendly. The concept of family
is an essential component of Angela’s art. For example, the yarn that she uses is
hand spun and dyed by a family-run sheep farm in Nebraska. Local knitters and
Angela’s mum help with the knitting. The 100% organic cotton T-shirts are
locally screened and printed using original crochet pieces made by her mum
or found at antique shops in England.
All of Angela’s products reflect a growing concern for the environment. She uses
reclaimed products whenever possible such as her Second Chance Silk tops
and her reclaimed sterling silver neck pieces cast from the needles and hooks
from her mum's sewing basket—no mining involved. The inks used in her Tops &
Totes are all water-based, thus kinder on the environment.
Natural talent, natural ingredients—according to Angela, stuff just isn’t irresistible
