Miuccia Prada is set to add jewelry to her fashion empire. In November, Prada will launch a capsule collection of bracelets, necklaces, brooches, and rings, ranging in style from rock ‘n’ roll gloss crocodile bracelets to opulent, sparkly pendants. [WWD]

It’s looking like the most chic Halloween costume this year is going to be a vampire. Inspired by the blood-chilling looks at Carine Roitfeld’s bal des vampires in Paris, The New York Times has a few costume suggestions to help you out. [NYT]

Noritaka Tatehana’s heelless shoe collection is rarely spotted outside of Tokyo (except on Lady Gaga’s feet), but thanks to a partnership with Comme des Garçons, her shoes will be on display in Paris, London, and Tokyo for a three-part exhibition. Her new red collection, her latest black collection, and archival pieces will on display. [Hint]
