At the forthcoming Opening Ceremony Spring/Summer 2015 fashion show, Opening Ceremony and Intel Corporation will introduce the smart bracelet developed from their landmark collaboration — MICA, “My Intelligent Communication Accessory,” designed by Opening Ceremony, engineered by Intel.

As a feminine accessory blending seamlessly into everyday life, MICA ushers in a new era converging fashion and technology by integrating a woman’s luxury accessory with technology in order to complement and enhance a woman’s work and social life.MICA enables women to stay connected via SMS messages, meeting alerts, and general notifications delivered directly to the wrist, with additional features and functionalities to be revealed at a later date. MICA embodies a true collaboration between the fashion and technology industries, with design based on Opening Ceremony’s fashion expertise and Intel’s industrial design capabilities, as well as input gathered from Opening Ceremony’s unique community.


MICA’s groundbreaking design combines semi-precious gems and water snake skin with advanced technology including communications capabilities and wireless charging support.MICA will be available in two styles constructed of premium finishes with a curved sapphire glass touchscreen display. One style will feature black water snake skin, pearls from China, and lapis stones from Madagascar, while the other style will feature white water snake skin, tiger’s eye from South Africa, and obsidian from Russia.
