In this installment of our new series, “Why I Collect,” Sotheby’s heads to Los Angeles to sit down with six collectors from the worlds of film, sports, music, style, and more. Watch as they each share pieces from their collections – ranging from contemporary art to sneakers—and discuss their perspectives on collecting, what got them started, what inspires them, and what they hope their collections say about them.
Meet Harley Viera-Newton, a Los Angeles-based DJ, designers and model. One of six tastemakers featured in “Why I Collect” – a new series spotlighting young collectors in L.A. who are also driving a surge of creativity in the city – Harley is a lover of collecting vintage fashion and handbags. In 2016, she launched her namesake label, HVN, a line of vintage inspired luxury silk dresses.
