Paddington Bear has been around since 1958 and since then he's appeared in numerous book and made guest television appearances. Now that he has his own movie, Mr. Bear needed to bring his wardrobe to the next level and that's why he shook hands with Rolls-Royce for a new look.
The company enjoys a deep connection to the world of aviation which continues to today's state-of-the art airliner jets. They've built tanks and fighter engines, throughout the years, but we'd like to remember them for the record-setting V12 hydroplanes of the 20s that led to the Supermarine Spitfire.
The theme was inspired by the automaker's founder and features a very clear retro aviation theme. Paddington is wearing a 3-button leather coat, sporty goggles and a travel case.
The makeover isn't just for show though, as this silver and brown statue is one of 50 that have been "sprinkled" throughout London to raise awareness and funds for the NSPCC under the name "Paddington Trail".
The NSPCC, or National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, the leading UK children's charity fighting to end abuse and Paddington is also their mascot.
