THE ISLAND OF UNIVERSAL LOVE One of 118 islands of French Polynesia scattered across the turquoise waters of the South Pacific, Motu Tané is François’ private resort. A place of unimaginable beauty, thatched roof bungalows with interiors by French designer Christian Liaigre are nestled amongst a lush landscape. François escapes to the island where the verdant mountains, powdery beaches, aquamarine lagoons, and the spirit of the people provide a limitless source of inspiration.
FLAGSHIP BOUTIQUE When François Nars launched his initial collection of 12 lipsticks in 1994, he had dreams of opening a namesake boutique. After years of searching for the quintessential spot, he found the perfect location in the historically landmarked neighborhood of Manhattan’s West Village.
François shot his first advertising campaign in 1996. His approach to photography is as visionary as his makeup philosophy. While his photographs are modern, sophisticated, and classically beautiful, his embrace of strong, unique faces and ethnic diversity has helped transform industry standards, by challenging and expanding traditional definitions of beauty.
