A notebook, an item of jewelry and notes on the materials, shapes and colors. Who is behind this account that now boasts over 31,000 followers? But, above all, how were the notebooks of the jewelry world’s most loved Instagramer, Will Kahn, created? This morning, at Visio.Next: Spreading Sustainability – from 10.30 to noon in Hall 7.1, Tiziano Room - Will Kahn will be intervening to offer his esteemed contribution to a theme that we all know is highly topical. «Besides the transparency of the entire production chain, I think there is another aspect to consider,» says Will prior to the opening of the round table. «Perhaps it is a poetic aspect, but I think that sustainability is also linked to the fact that jewelry is handed down from generation to generation. Consumers are rediscovering antique jewelry and old-mine cut diamonds. In this way they feel ‘safe’ because, on the one hand they have acquired jewelry with a story, and on the other, these items have limited environmental impact.» A lover of turquoise after a trip to Santa Fé, Will Kahn has a weakness for lapis lazuli, his grandmother’s favorite stone. And, in reference to Italian jewelry, he says, «I love Italian manufacturing because of its workmanship, long tradition and beauty, which is always so evident.» Where did the notebook idea come from? «I began as a fashion editor for the magazine W and organizing photo shoots required notes upon notes. But it was when I went to Town & Country as the jewelry editor that the notebook idea came into being.» Let’s wait and see how many precious notes he will take at Vicenzaoro. Stay tuned!When you open Instagram in the morning and you are a ‘socially’ declared jewelry lover, the algorithm positions “Willsnotebook” among the first feeds to appear in your scroll.
