Opening Ceremony and Intel debut wearable tech bracelet

Dazed photographer Collier Schorr shoots the sleek 'n' smart campaign featuring Kirsten Owen and Ajak Deng

Despite Diane von Furstenberg's best efforts, fashion hasn't exactly warmed to wearable tech. Things might be changing slowly behind the scenes (what with Apple poaching big-name fashion executives here, there and everywhere) but nobody has yet produced a truly alluring piece of technology that combines both form and function. Until Opening Ceremony entered the scene, that is. 

Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have teamed up with Intel to produce the MICA, which is short for My Intelligent Communication Accessory. Billed as a "smart accessory", it takes the shape of a typically big and bold Opening Ceremony bracelet and is studded with semiprecious jewels and wrapped in snakeskin that features a curved touchscreen display.

Dazed favourite Collier Schorr shot the first campaign images for Intel-Opening Ceremony collab, featuring Kirsten Owen and Ajak Deng. Check the images out here: it's probably the first piece of wearable tech that actually stands on its own aesthetic merits. As in, we'd probably buy it first, worry about the app functionality later – probably a good thing, given that Intel haven't yet announced what exactly you'll be able to do with it. 

The bracelets will make their runway debut at Opening Ceremony's NYFW show this Sunday, and will be available at select Opening Ceremony and Barneys stores in December.

What do you think – is this one piece of wearable tech you'd actually buy? Or, to put it another way: is this more or less ugly than Google Glass?
