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!
