Published Sep 29, 2016


Ipanema has announced that South Africa’s favourite sweetheart, Bonang Matheba, will be its new continental brand ambassador across Africa, bringing her elegant touch and love for fashion to the soulful, summery brand.

Named after the iconic Ipanema beach in Brazil, the brand’s fashionable yet relaxed feel has long been associated with Brazilian-born beauty and famous model, Gisele Bündchen. Ipanema’s decision to bring Queen B on-board as the quintessential African ‘Ipanema Girl’ is a bold move for the brand, reflecting a shift towards a more afro-centric focus.

"It's truly an honour to be the face of Ipanema Africa - a brand that gives you comfort ensuring you have the most fun, in beautiful sandals," says Bonang Matheba.
