A new era for Esquire began one year ago with the appointment of Sergei Minaev as editor-in-chief. The magazine started profiling new people, covering new topics, organized festivals, and much more.

Throughout the year, they featured well-known figures such as actor Jude Law, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, musicians Sergei Shnurov and Dave Gahan, and journalist Ksenia Sobchak. Minaev announced that retail sales of the magazine had increased by more than 30% in September.

The Esquire Weekend event featuring a performance by musician Ivan Dorn was another of they years successes. Esquire deputy editor-in-chief Sergei Yakovlev explained that in 2018, the magazine plans to have a separate stage for musicians, and to invite world-class performers, increase the number of guests, and create even more interactive zones.
