Needs & Wants Studios, a designer streetwear label that's known for its understated aesthetics, joined with an architecture student from Toronto's Ryerson University, who helped to create a mobile boutique that would host the label's seasonal offerings.

Although a standard shipping container comprises the base of the boutique, its interior is taken over by beautiful wood paneling, and the exterior is covered in stark white paint to maintain a minimalist look. On the sides of the shipping container, large windows are cut out on either side to let natural light in, and to take advantage of the green landscape that it's situated in on The Kingsway.

Inside of Needs & Wants Studios' boutique, there's a small rack of apparel, a large mirror that makes the space seem larger, as well as a few other homeware touches.
