The painter, illustrator and graphic designer Alois Carigiet created this bright and sunny poster for St. Moritz in the early 1930s, when one-piece snowsuits were all the rage. The chic young woman embodies the fashionable winter resort of St. Moritz, which already attracted luxury and winter sports lovers almost a hundred years ago. This, as well as its rarity, may be why this poster lithograph is coveted by collectors.
