With all the buzzy fashion collabs these days, only a select few truly live up to the hype. Sure, we'll get butterflies thinking about the aspirational-yet-affordable spawn of a high-street staple and couture virtuoso, but a really good mash-up is one that brings something entirely new to the table. So, when the smarties at Intel and the stylish folks at Opening Ceremony teamed up this past Fashion Week on a never-been-done-before accessory, we'll admit, we couldn't wait to take it for a spin. Dubbed the MICA, short for My Intelligent Communications Accessory, it's part bracelet, part wearable tech — and now it's officially available for purchase.
But first, you may want to know a thing or two about the MICA. Designed for the hyper-connected, fashionable woman on the go, it looks like a glam cuff from an aerial view, but there's a small, hidden screen on the underside. That’s the portal to discreetly check in on important happenings (and maybe some much-needed distractions) throughout the day, including text messages, Yelp recs, and schedule reminders. And, we have a little something to get off our chest: Refinery29 is now delivering fresh updates to the MICA bracelet — which means your favorite R29 content is heading straight to your wrist, in real time.
