Fall/Winter 2016: Drop I

The first drop of Citadel’s Fall/Winter 2016 Collection is now available.

 

The collection & lookbook is a showcase of brand new Citadel pieces with photography taken during Halifax Pop Explosion, featuring Canadian and Halifax-based artists.

 

Neon Dreams is a 4-piece electronic band bridging EDM and pop with two Top 40 Billboard singles under their belt. Maccie, from Toronto, is fresh off the release of her EP “Primal” and ready to make noise in the indie-pop scene. Yohan Black and Mikayla States, rapper and singer respectively, are making waves in the Halifax underground and ready for the next step with producer Jordan Metro.

 

Photography was taken by Patrick Fulgencio, Josh Mckenna, and King Tabrizi.

 

Drop I of Citadel’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection consists of the Clocktower tee, the Artillery Hoodie in two colourways, the Citadel Signature Cap, and the Guard The City longsleeve tee.

 

Drop I is now available on our online store.

Halifax Collection for Citadel’s One-Year Anniversary

The Halifax Collection, released for our One-Year Anniversary, is our way of paying tribute to the city that we draw so much inspiration from. We wanted to do this in a simplistic and clever way by using the recognizable typeface of the city of Halifax.

 

The lookbook is a collection of sentimental photographs shot by Kyle Bernard, one of Halifax’s most well-known photographers. Art direction is by Josh Mckenna, co-founder of Citadel.

 

We wanted it to resemble the culture of Halifax and show the highlights of the city. If you’re from around here, you’ll most likely recognize some of these spots.

 

The Halifax Collection launched during our One-Year Anniversary Party at The Blackbook Collective. It is now available on our online store.

Here are some photos from our special day. All photography credit goes to Kyle Bernard and Carter Hutton.

Citadel Sessions with Second World Collective

We’re proud to say that CITADEL SESSIONS on the Argyle Bar & Grill Rooftop, in collaboration with Second World Collective, was a huge success. SWC has been running Halifax’s nightlife scene by consistently throwing the city’s hottest parties. Shoutout to MIXRE, CRaymak, and S K W N D R for making the night wild. Shoutout to Chillin’ With Bernie for capturing the night’s best moments.

 

We couldn’t be more thankful for everyone who supported us, copped something from our pop-up shop, and turned up with us. To everyone who couldn’t pull up this time, don’t worry – we’ll be back with more.

 

Feel free to use these photos for your personal use.  More photos are up here. All photography credit goes to Chillin’ With Bernie.
