Ten-time UEFA Champions League winner Real Madrid is in for a very stylish season, thanks to a fierce revamp in the team's kit by designer Yohji Yamamoto.

Yohji played around with a dragon motif for the kit, keeping his signature black for the jersey, while the cleats are multi-coloured. Adidas said that the design represents how the players are "modern-day heroes, achieving mythical status through continued victory."

If the Champions League ranked jerseys too, there's no guessing who would win the category this coming season. The Real boys won't be the only ones to wear the new design, though. 1,400 limited edition kits are to make their way to select Adidas, Y-3, Yohji Yamamoto and Real Madrid stores for those who act quickly.

Another collection of jerseys based on Yohji's design for men, women and children will be available soon. (Good news, they ship to Malaysia!)
