Madrid: Leading fashion houses, including Lacroix, Armani and Victorio & Lucchino, are creating colourful, comfortable and imaginative outfits for some of Spain's top bullfighters.

Some of the outfits have been inspired by the works of Goya and Picasso, giving bullfighters a new luster as they take the ring.

The designers have produced exclusive outfits for bullfighters such as Cayetano Rivera, Antonio Chamaco, Enrique Ponce, Javier Conde and Antonio Ferrera.

"They can't fool around, especially with the pants, one of the most complicated garments. They have to fit tight but be comfortable," said Santos Garcia, one of the famous bullfighting star tailor.

The outfits must fit a bullfighter like a "glove", the 48-year-old Garcia said.

Bullfighting outfits, which are made to last 20 or 30 years, are usually worn only "two or three times" by their original owner, Garcia said.
