In a departure from their collaborative Y-3 endeavor, adidas has tapped award-winning Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto to create Real Madrid‘s third kit for the 2014/15 campaign. Set to make its debut during UEFA Champions League action, the striking all-black kit takes cues from the Madridismo‘s values of greatness and determination, as well as Yamamoto’s own aesthetic, and incorporates two mythical beasts that originate in Eastern culture: the dragon king and dragon bird. Interlaced across the front of the shirt, the king symbolizes the greatness, glory and power of the club while the bird represents resistance, determination and agility on the way to victory. Finished with a mao-type collar, two-color crest, and the designer’s signature, Real Madrid’s black kit is now available in limited quantities from adidas.com.
