It began with three simple styles. In 1999, Yamin Levy and his wife, Dorien, both immigrants, happened upon an opportunity to produce exquisite, handmade sandals on the Mystical Island of Bali. The original run sold out immediately, setting the company on a beautiful course of nearly two decades. Mystique now offers 300 styles, twice a year, each one designed personally by Yamin. From minimalist and modern to bold and flashy, there is a gorgeous sandal for every kind of woman, for every occasion, and every location.
Following in their parents’ footsteps, the Levy sisters, Danielle and Michelle, joined Mystique’s Los Angeles enterprise in 2012. In turn, a second generation of artisans has joined the production community in Bali. In two locations across the world, a sense of community continues to inspire exquisite footwear that instills a sense of adventure in every step.
Balinese artisans craft every part of the Mystique sandal by hand, and each pair is made to order. The foundation is a 100 percent leather sole, lined in suede for comfort and inspired by the luxury of the world’s most exciting travel destinations. Jewelry-inspired styles are embellished with gems imported from Europe, each one sewn on by hand.
