75%. A simple, number with big implications. My best guess, 75% of the clothes I see Gucci putting out, are kinda ridiculous. People would never buy 75%, were it not branded GUCCI. 15% are good and their top 10%, of products, are absolutely phenomenal. Cutting edge, and high style.
Only 25% of their line is really good. And that is enough for them to be a smashing success. And this is the pareto principle in action. And I find that really encouraging. Because life is hard, business is hard, relationships are hard.
This piece of art was something I made for myslef. A reminder to be kind and accepting of myself, and set a low expectation of 25%. BTW, the gucci images in this piece are fantastic. The watercolor paints used, are a color study of the dresses in the gel transfer.
