Meltdown, The Alps Under Pressure, National Geographic Magazine: Glitzy Designer Shops

Trendy St. Moritz is famous for its glitzy après-ski scene, which features glamorous shops selling trendy, high-priced designer dresses.

Shop windows in the five star luxury hotel Badrutt’s Palace reflect the excesses afforded by well-heeled tourists.
