Love Begets Love
The importance of love and compassion is emphasized again and again from the moment Myriel is the first person to show Valjean any kindness after his release from prison. The bishop's continuous forgiveness, even after Valjean betrays his trust and steals his silver, becomes a model on which Valjean bases his actions for the rest of his life.
Go ahead and show yourself a little compassion by slipping on this cozy knit in warm shades of red and off-white.

With Liberty and Justice for All
The social injustice of the 19th century French class system is arguably the most prevalent theme of all. Writer Victor Hugo was particularly perturbed by the nation's law enforcement system, as well as the poor treatment of women.
Dress in this militaristic, brass buttoned blazer to prepare for the modern day fight against inequality.

The Failings of the French Revolution
Often glorified in popular culture, Les Miserables looks at the downside of the French Revolution as its characters live through the rise and fall of Napoleon. The film paints a riveting portrait of the very real social unrest and uncertainty that existed in France at this time, while simultaneously calling into question the revolution's legacy.
Much like this two-toned silk blouse, the Revolution boasted high ideals, but some of those ideals turned a different shade altogether once they were put into practice.

The Plight of the Orphan
Master of Disguise
Perhaps this would have been a more apt title to the show's hit song "Master of the House." Protagonist Valjean must constantly conceal his identity to escape the stigma of his checkered past. Ultimately, his alter-egos prove more burden than salvation.
Lighten the load with this cozy chic wool cape. The identity masking, oversized black hood is optional.
