If you're anything like the women here at MIIM, sometimes you only have a minute to spare before your next endeavor. You’ll find us catching the subway from one showroom appointment to another, taking a meeting while Ubering to an event, or staying up late to make a deadline. As they say, a New York Minute is the shortest minute you'll ever experience, so make the most of it! So, whether you're flying back to NYC on the red-eye or just walking from the gym to the office, find the product that fits in your pocket and your schedule.
