The new Champions League kit for the Spanish giants will feature a design by Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto. According to the club's website, the design represents the "greatness and determination of the club with two mythical beasts from oriental culture". No word on why Los Blancos are wearing black instead of their trademark white.
