Steve Madden and Bonang Matheba’s collaboration

Steve Madden has announced its first ever African collaboration with South African powerhouse Bonang Matheba, she’ll bring the Steve Madden Bonang Matheba Holiday Select Collection to market. As part of the brands build- up in celebrating 10 years in Africa, this collaboration once again proves Steve Madden’s trend-setting edge.

The holiday range selected by Bonang Matheba includes six footwear and two handbag styles that in the style-icon’s eyes, epitomises the celebratory mood of a South African summer. “I was looking for styles that would be great to holiday in, celebrate in, dance the night away in or even be the perfect gift to spoil someone special with over the festive season,” she said.   Looking at the range, which can be identified by their signature Bonang packaging, Bonang has nailed it.
