This co-created jersey - designed together with Humanrace Creative Director and long-term adidas collaborator Pharrell Williams – was informed by the club’s past, with their legacy serving as the foundations of the design process.
These moments were reimagined to reflect today’s football culture through the lens of the Humanrace design ethos; inspired by and in celebration of the imperfect beauty of the human spirit.
The new Real Madrid jersey was born from Yohji Yamamoto’s – a friend and collaborator of Pharrell – striking dragon design of the 2014-15 season. The original artwork saw a king’s dragon - a mythical creature symbolising glory, honour, greatness, and speed - and a bird print, against monochromatic black. The Human Race FC team have reimagined this design with a hand drawn water technique to create an optic dragon on the shirt, resulting in a symbol of sporting and design excellence.
