Dressing in a suit of lights is a ritual, carrying an essence that transcends the sacred. The vehicle that transforms a man into a bullfighter. A rite in which only the bullfighter and his swordsman can be present as an assistant. Hence all the symbology that surrounds this clothing: its colors, its shapes, its volume, will endow the bullfighter with a confidence that he must show off when he goes out into the ring.
Since its creation, the costume of lights is one of the most identifying elements of the party. Its name comes from the optical effects produced by the sequins that adorn it. It is made of silk and covered with gold or silver embroidery in the case of matadors (only matadors can wear gold), and silver or jet in the case of subordinates or banderilleros.
The value of a custom suit of lights is inestimable, the only way for a bullfighter to find the necessary comfort to go out into the ring is dressed in a completely tailored piece that adapts to his movements. Now you have the opportunity to acquire an authentic work of art, like the suit of lights that actress Sarah Jessica Parker wore in her report for Smoda magazine, adapting it to your favorite colors.
