Collection d'Arnell~Andréa was founded in France in 1986 by Jean-Christophe d'Arnell and Chloé St Liphard. They released a first maxi record Autumn's Breath for Anton's Death on Valotte Records in 1988. From 1989 to 1994, Collection d'Arnell~Andréa released four LPs on New Rose Records, the French label of the eighties. The first LP, Un Automne à Loroy, is a funeral oration to the autumn where sobbing Cello and Chloé's voice stand out the record. The French and International press gave them an enthusiastic reception.
