Fashion Jewelry Anklets

Scope especially in the 1990s and even earlier by the hippies, has reappeared in the catwalks last year

The ankle bracelet, or anklet, is back in fashion: it is reviewed in the collections of many designers for spring/summer 2016, but he had already revived Nicolas Ghesquière, Creative Director of Louis Vuitton, the year before. Many people associate the anklet to the 1990s, when it was very common, but has a much older history.

Another fashion magazine tells that the first ankle bracelets were found in the tombs of the Sumerians and dated back to the 5th Millennium BC: the women wore with necklaces, rings and earrings. They were brought in the old Egypt, where the material indicated social status among the noble and wealthy: gold, silver, iron, leather and strings of beads between the poorer classes. In Europe they spread in the Bronze Age (between the fourth and second Millennium b.c.): they have been found along the Danube, the Rhine, the Atlantic coast and in the Alpine region. In Hellenistic Greece and Asia Minor were a symbol of wealth is widespread, the demand for luxury goods of that society.

The country where the silver anklets were and still are worn most frequently is India, where often take on social symbolic meanings and in Rajasthan are very heavy to indicate tribal membership, in some areas indicate whether a woman is married or not (usually it is if the wearer left, sometimes men give the betrothed at the time of the engagement). Those calls paayal are flexible, often adorned with bells and carried by dancers (still used by Arab women during the belly) and wear them on both ankles is considered very sensual, also because it often forces in smaller steps, considered particularly feminine. The anklet is also the protagonist of a tamil epic novel of the 1st century AD: it’s called Cilappatikaram (“the story of the brace”) and tells the story of a woman whose husband is killed while trying to sell one of his ankle to a goldsmith.

It is indeed from India that the West reintroduces, since the fifties, the anklet, who had since disappeared. At the time, the fashion and culture were very influenced by the East and even the anklets spread especially among hippies, at least initially: were silver, often with small pendants and ethnic style, inspired by those who were in India, Pakistan and Nepal.

In the West the anklet became a mass phenomenon in the 1990s, when both men and women began to wear it, especially in the summer and were propositions in their collections by many designers (although some considered them rather clumsy). Fashion journalist Isabella Blow – famous for eccentric appearance and for discovering designers like Philip Treacy and Alexander McQueen – often wore ankle bracelets, especially one with a broken heart as a pendant. In an interview that made her the reporter Daisy Garnett – for which she posed with a dress by Alexander McQueen and with that ankle bracelet – explained that “people think the anklet is kitsch, but it’s actually elegant, because it draws attention to the ankle, in fact.”

It is likely that in the coming months we will see increasingly anklets around and already from last season are on sale in many shops, especially the model called “ankle toe bracelet”, or one or more ankle bracelets from which a chain that reaches to the toes, like a sandal.

After wearing high-heeled sandals with thin ones offered by Louis Vuitton for autumn/winter 2015-16, have entered in the catwalks for spring summer also from Calvin Klein, very large, in gold and worn with sneakers, and from Chloé, very thin and worn with flat slippers. Those Marc Jacobs have pearls and glitter and are accompanied by court shoes. In the last year have been brought by celebrities such as Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce, who wears it in the video of the song “Hold On” visual album, which accompanied the release of his latest album, Lemonade.
