School Supplies: Ballantyne SS/10 Sweaters

-Selectism posted looks from Ballantyne's SS/10 collection. I'd never heard of the Italian label before I saw the post, and the styling of the collection overall is a bit garish for my tastes, but I'm really digging the bright graphic sweaters. I'm wondering why graphic elements beyond pattern aren't used in sweaters more often? Sure there's the badass rustic wolf knitted kind, but why not throw a bit of simple illustration into a more refined garment? The label seems to only be available in Italy, so it's more likely that I'll find something like this in a thrift store, but I'll be on the lookout for a dope graphic sweater this spring.
