Called the 'MICA', the wearable tech accessory was engineered by Intel and designed by New York City-based fashion brand Opening Ceremony.

The bracelet is set to be publicly unveiled at the Opening Ceremony Spring/Summer 2015 fashion show on Sept. 7 in New York City. First announced in January this year at CES in Las Vegas, MICA stands for 'My Intelligent Communication Accessory' and is being touted as "a feminine fashion accessory with communications capabilities."

The unit can display SMS messages, meeting alerts and general notifications, which are all delivered directly to the wrist and are visible on a curved sapphire glass touchscreen display, and it can also be charged wirelessly.

That's just the tech though; fashionistas will want to know about the finish! The design comes in two styles, one in black watersnake skin, with Chinese pearls and Madagascan lapis stones, while the other is in white watersnake skin, South African tiger's eye, and obsidian from Russia. 

Opening Ceremony and Intel worked with fashion photographer Collier Schorr, who shot models Kirsten Owen and Ajak Deng wearing the MICA and dressed in looks from the label's Fall/Winter 2014 collection. There's no news yet on the price, but the MICA bracelet will be available at select Barneys and Opening Ceremony stores by holiday 2014.
