Happy Birthday Mr. Benn – A Turnbull & Asser Collaboration

I’m probably showing my age here but I wilded away my childhood afternoons watching episodes of Mr. Benn as a child and I was amazed to discover recently that there was only ever 13 episodes produced by the Beeb !

David McKee painstakingly animated this beautiful, unique and much loved cartoon voiced by the inimitable Ian Lavender. To mark his 50th Birthday Gentleman’s outfitter Turnbull & Asser have exclusively collaborated with David McKee to produce a new range of Mr. Benn pocket squares, launching this September. In a limited edition run of 100 pieces per design, Mr. Benn takes the mantle as secret agent and international man of mystery, MI6’s very own James Bond

On working with Mr. Benn creator David McKee for the latest collaboration, Turnbull & Asser’s head of design, Dean Gomilsek-Cole said,

“This was our second chance to work with David, and he loved the idea of combining two very British characters to create a unique Mr. Benn story, so it made it even more special.”
