Collectivo, a high-end women's fashion boutique carrying a mix of Latin American and local artisan brands, opened a new shop in the Heights at 733 Yale St., Houston, on May 15.

The store previously operated a pop-up in Bush Intercontinental Airport for six months, but it was shuttered when the airport suspended retail operations because of coronavirus. Prior to that, the store had a location in the River Oaks area.


Owned by Geraldine Boyer, the store also focuses on brands owned by women, with 38 labels represented.

"Every brand has a story behind it. They help their community or give back in some way," Boyer said. "We are supporting a lot of local brands that need that support as well." 832-831-8818. www.collectivostore.com
