ClothSurgeon, AKA Rav Matharu, presents his Spring Summer 2013 Collection, ‘Shantaram’, the name meaning, Man of God’s Peace and is taken from the novel by  Australian author, Gregory David Roberts in which a convicted Australian bank robber and heroin fiend escapes from the notorious Pentridge Prison to Mumbai, India; pretty riveting stuff. The book explores and analyses the diversity of modern day Mumbai and is based on real events.

With such meticulous research and a profound meaning drawn from the book, the collection is no anti climax as Matharu shows the full extent of skills he attained as designer at House of Billiam. It’s a very clean collection comprised of leather biker jackets, printed contrasting t-shirts, vests, quilted jackets, shorts and a stunning varsity jacket that is a mix of leather and quilted. The variety of textures is luxurious and an the attention to detail and acute quality control is evident. Yes, it’s street wear, but it’s of a different breed; with it’s roots within classic tailoring providing a solid foundation, but there is a contemporary modernity coursing through it. The pieces are wearable and do not clamour for attention, instead they emit an understated self confidence.
