I thought that the image can have (at least) two meanings:
A criticism to capitalism. We are slaves of the system; and we ignore it, or rather cheat ourself, by make it look like the chains are ornaments we wear.
A expose of the culture that makes us believe that swag, or any specific mode of dress and act, are the only way to fit in a specific comunity.

another analogy would be that even though blacks were slaves, they made the best of the situation and prospered, turning the chains of enslavement into the chains of adornment.

It could be that.
But i think that the artist wasn't making a historical reference, or else it would be a background that reference a specific era or time to enhace the statement.
The body lenguage of the picture is showing a pose of modern age, that is why i would go for a more recent point of view.
(what #44 Phoeniix says seems accurate to...)
