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.
