I’m not the only one out there who gets immense satisfaction from such unscientific graphs. In addition to room for improvement, this one has so many possibilities.
Some interesting comments popped up after my last graph. First, no category will simply stick to a single quadrant. Big Irv correctly pointed out how workwear seems to tumble towards fashionability. I thought that Lululemon is a blend of sports clothing and fashion with a moderate to high degree of functionality. So it floats at the most fashionable edge of the “sports bubble”.
Then it occured to me that the most expensive clothing would cluster around the outer edges where there was supreme functionality or extreme fashionability – especially fashionability. So I mocked up that as well, just for fun.
Rebecca gets a kick out of the graphs too – it’s fun to visualize fashion like this. Her system for dressing is so elegant it would be well suited for some lovely graphic representation.
