Four years after its debut in the former leader of the communist world, National Magazine Company’s upmarket title Harper's Bazaar is to be relaunched by its local publisher, Independent Media.

The refurbished magazine [branded Harper’s & Queen in the UK] will feature a larger logo and additional news pages. The new editor is Shakri Amirkhanova, a former Moscow staffer at sister-publication Cosmopolitan.

Harper's present Russian circulation is 50,000 copies monthly.
