Opening Ceremony and Intel Smart Bracelet MICA

The Smart Bracelet Every Street Style Star Is Going to Wear

Next year's ensembles are walking down this year's runways at New York Fashion Week which, unfortunately, ends today. There's already at least one trend emerging: tech. Fashion brand Opening Ceremony and chip maker Intel announced a style-meets-gadgetry collaboration called MICA, which stands for "My Intelligent Communication Accessory." The smart bracelet has a small 1.6-inch touchscreen display that shows text messages, alerts, and notifications. It's also seriously chic, as models Kirsten Owen and Ajak Deng prove in the freshly revealed first images of MICA.

Coveting this opulent wearable with high-tech jewels? It will be available in Barneys New York and Opening Ceremony stores just in time for the holidays. The gadget will be priced around $1,000, so save your pennies now. The actual tech in the bracelet includes 3G data capability, which means it can work without a paired smartphone nearby. Wireless charging (yee!) may also be in the works for MICA. Intel will reveal more details in October, but until then, we'll just ogle the jewelry when it comes down the catwalk on Sunday at Opening Ceremony's Spring/Summer 2015 show. The bracelet will come in two styles: a black water-snake skin, pearl, and lapis stone version, and a white water-snake skin, tiger's eye, and obsidian model.

We're no stranger to chic wrist-bound wearables. Tory Burch for Fitbit was a fitness tech collaboration that inspired major coveting, and the Cuff Security Bracelet's upcoming line is worthy of a goddess. It looks like women are demanding gadgetry that suits their style — and tech makers are finally listening.
