The wearing of this object of embellishment can be found as early as Sumerian times, which are traced to the 5th millennium BC, and are considered the first ancient urban civilisation. During the mid-1960s there was an increasing fascination in eastern cultures in the west, with hordes of hippies embarking on the 'hippy trail': an adventure which begun in Europe and ended in South Asia, travelling through Pakistan, India, and Nepal. This led to a rise in fashionable clothing and accessories inspired by the regions. Anklets thus became fashionable in the West.
'People think that an ankle bracelet is something tacky, but in fact it is elegant because it draws attention to the ankle. It's very sexy, a delicate ankle. Don't you think?' - Isabella Blow
