Real Madrid and Adidas have launched the Los Blancos’ new Champions League kit for the upcoming season.
Stars including Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, Marcelo, Xabi Alonso and Iker Casillas introduced the kit today.
It has been designed by Japanese designer, Yohji Yamamoto, who tried to merge a global design legend with one of the biggest football clubs in the world.
The ‘dragon kit’ is a black shirt with two white mythical beats, ‘representing the greatness and determination of the club’.
The official statement read: “Designed with the innovative Adizero™, the black shirt ensures maximum performance and its ultra-light fabric allows freedom of movement and comfort without compromising on elasticity and durability.
“The two mythical beasts in white that appear interweaved on the torso are striking. One is the dragon king, a symbol of the greatness, glory and power of the club, while the bird dragon, which is an animal capable of adapting to the most hostile situations, represents the resilience, determination and ability of this centuries-old club on its path to victory.”
Real will wear the revolutionary kit in the upcoming Champions League campaign, trying to become the first side to defend the title since the inception of the new competition format in 1992.
