Real Madrid's LaLiga clash with Sporting Gijon on Saturday afternoon saw Los Blancos sport a one-off strip in support of a global environmental initiative.
Real, who won 2-1 thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo brace, were decked out in a special home kit manufactured using plastic waste gathered from the Indian Ocean.
The move came as part of a cooperation between Adidas, Madrid's shirt supplier, and the 'Parley for the Oceans' campaign aimed at cleaning up the world's seas.
Rain in Spain falls mainly on kit campaign
Things didn't go completely to plan, however, as the torrential downpour at a rain-sodden Santiago Bernabéu wrought havoc with the nonetheless very classy strip.
The club badge and sponsors' logos, printed in a lighter tone, were quickly rendered invisible, while the jersey and shorts became increasingly transparent.
Bayern also wore eco-friendly strip
Adidas' partnership with Parley, an organisation that bids to "raise awareness for the beauty and fragile nature of our oceans", also saw the sportswear giant make a similar kit for Bayern Munich to play in earlier in November against Hoffenheim.
The special-edition shirt is available to buy here (just don't wear it in the rain...)
