Dressed To Kill

Dressed To Kill – CHAMPAGNE! Sparkling Couture – MATADOR

The very essence of prowess is found in the matador. He who is brave, fearless and with complete courage to face anything. The ‘Matador’ by Enzo Champagne of Champagne Sparkling Couture is an ensemble that will make you feel truely powerful and bold as you present your style, technique, and courage! This authentically daring ensemble is ornately embroidered and jeweled and will leave no doubt as to who is in charge!

Matador Silvano Korobase is seen here styled in vivid red — the color that every bull is instinctively attracted to — has never been so beautifully utilized as in this ensemble. A traditional pristine white shirt with collar (camisa) and black tie (corbatín), lies under a brilliant red jacket (chaquetilla), with magnificently floral embroidered long sleeves. Matching embroidery is continued throughout the jacket, flowing down each sleeve. The jacket is also embellished with red and gold jeweled cuffs and with tiny white satin ball fringe detail at the edges. Over the jacket is a take-your-breath-away bolero vest, the focal point of this outfit, adorned and covered with red and gold jewels, tassles, embroidery, and white satin ball fringe.

Because of the decorations and elaborateness of the ensemble, the Spanish call the toreador’s outfit as traje de luces, meaning the “suit of lights”. Though undoubtedly flamboyant, matador costume structure provides great ease of movement. These trajes are based on the flamboyant costumes of the 18th century dandies and showmen involved in tauromachia, which later became exclusive to the bullfighting ritual. Later adornments include the montera hat, elaborate embroidery and decorative accessories. The cropped red pants continue the ornate floral embroidery stripes on each side, as well as matching jeweled cuffs at the calf of the leg. Included is a lavish hand-held red cape (capote de paseo) with gold interior bar that will keep any bull at bay! Bright fuscia leggings (taleguilla/medias) and black slippers (zapatillas) with matching jeweled embellishments are also provided.

The traditional hat (montera) usually worn by the matador has been restyled by Enzo Champagne for this ensemle to offer a final “Wow”. A jeweled horn head piece is made of pure gold and decorated with red and gold jewels to distinctively show everyone who the winner is — exquisite! Gentlemen, hurry to CHAMPAGNE! Sparkling Couture where MATADOR is waiting for you!

Berlin Alexanderplatz

He steps off the train and makes his way through the station, walking quickly. All eyes are upon him, this man…
this well dressed mystery man. He walks with purpose… searching the crowd, and suddenly he stops. For a moment he
is still as his eyes find you. He inhales deeply on his cigar and the air fills with an intoxicating aroma that
brings a warm smile to your face. Locking eyes, he walks to you… slowly… and embraces you. His lips touch your
ear softly. You feel the warmth of his breath caress your neck and he whispers to you. “It’s in the suitcase”. You
smile softly, forgetting the goosebumps on your flesh and how you have pressed into him. Looking up you say to him;
“Amazing suit, where did you get it”? He stops, grins at you, and through striking a series of “Vogue” poses you
both laugh and he shares his tale.

“I went to Tres Beau and met with the owner; Kimmera Madison. We had a such a good time… she is a cut up. Kimmera
showed me several things and then she told me she had been saving one special suit and showed me this this. She
calls this the ‘Andrew’. As soon as I saw it I wanted it. I aksed to try it on and she let me. I just have not taken
it off since I put it on. I mean look at it, who would not want to be seen in this? I love the grey colors… the
houndstooth prints and look in the detail of the jacket. Can you see the subtle plaid in the background of the
print? Amazing details like this are in all of her designs and that’s why she has secured herself a spot as one of
Second Life’s top designers”.

You tell him; “I love the single breasted notch lapel on the jacket, and the grey flannel trousers and hat are a
nice addition. The shirt and tie just make the outfit. Kimmera has become a fashion plate, and YOU Mr. Korobase look
very handsome in her designs”. He tells you “Let’s go home now, I have a suprise for you in the suitcase that I got
you while I was at Tres Beau getting this suit”. You grin at one another and turn to leave the station as you reach
up, take the cigar from his lips and take a long deep drag off of it yourself. Arm in arm you venture on.

Theatre mood

BAROQUE is the latest release for the gents from CHAMPAGNE!sparkling couture and this outfit sets the tone for a sumptuous feast of decadent fabrics and intricate embellishments!

First introduced at the 2012 Mister Virtual World Pageant for the formal costume of Miko Scorpio Mister Greece, BAROQUE can now be yours — and the possibilities you will have with this stunning couture are many!

BAROQUE comes to you in your choice of Beige or White, and both are the perfect choice for that formal occasion, whether it be a wedding, a ball, or an event where you want to be noticed!

Authentically rich textures provide the perfect background for the entire look.  Your celebration of spirtuality and opulence begins with the shirt and gorgeous long jacket with gloriously detailed accompaniments.   A high-collared, button-down shirt is worn under the luxuriously textured jacket.  Your eyes are drawn to the bow tie with a twinkling center which hugs the shirt collar.  The jacket is further detailed with a decorative toggle fastener and buttoned prim cuffs.

Yards of sheer organza lie on top of two magnificent shoulder pieces cascade down both the front and back. A separate impressively bold collar piece with a beautiful front satin fabric cradles your head and fits just inside the shoulder pieces. And we are not done yet!

The trousers are form fitting with lower prim pieces, pocket detail, and, of course, made of the same lavishly textured fabric. A matching belt with ornate toggle fastener completes this dramatic and vivid work of art.
