The origins

If in the seventies he expressed the anarchist and rebellious spirit of the movement punk, since the Eighties it has instead been strongly linked to musical culture, becoming a trousseau of band hardcore and new punk from the nineties. Therefore, from a wallet chain, conceived as a deterrent to theft and muggings, the side chain has then turned into a status symbol for one and more generations.
