"This auction is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire some of the most personal and iconic items from the private collection of Phil and Orianne Collins," said Russ Kodner of Kodner Auction Gallery. "These items are some of Phil Collins’ most iconic instruments and collectables, and Orianne’s most prized possessions."
Orianne Collins told The New York Post's "Page Six," that "It pains me to part with these cherished items, but I recently downsized homes and simply do not have room for many of the items. Furthermore, this auction will allow me to donate a large portion of proceeds to the “Never Give Up Foundation,” which fills in the gaps needed to build a more inclusive future for those with disabilities like Spinal Muscular Atrophy. These are some of our most prized family possessions including the vintage Wurlitzer juke box Phil’s manager gifted us when we got married in 1999, and Phil's personal Yamaha piano that was our family piano, where he taught our son Nicholas to play. I am also auctioning off a huge collection of Chanel. I was Chanel’s number one client in 2001 with more than 500 pairs of Chanel shoes in my collection. This auction features so many high-end couture items, including Chanel clothing, shoes, boots, and a large selection of Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry."
