The holiday range selected by Bonang Matheba herself 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,” said Matheba in a statement.

The range is set to debut at Steve Maddens Spring/Summer collection

launch on 7 November and will be available in stores and online from 06 November 2022.

The official launch and fashion showcase of the Steve Madden Spring/Summer collection will be held at Zeitz Mocaa Museum in Cape Town.
