Steve Madden has announced its first-ever African collaboration with South African powerhouse Bonang Matheba, who will bring the Steve Madden Bonang Matheba Holiday Select Collection to market. As part of the brand’s 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 epitomise 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.
The official launch and fashion showcase of the Steve Madden Spring/Summer collection, to be held at Zeitz Mocaa Museum in Cape Town on 7 November, is anticipated to be an invite-only, all-star affair with local celebrities, top South African influencers, friends of the brand and an international team from New York in attendance. The exceptional range will be available in stores and online from 6 November.
Top brands that have partnered with Steve Madden for the launch include Lift Airlines, WINK Aparthotels, House on BNG, SoHo and Mac Cosmetics.
