Top Frock:
Kris says, “This maxi skirt also works as a dress. It’s the first thing I designed for my daughter and now it’s the most popular piece in our debut neve + hawk collection.”


Coming Clean:
“I love Miessence certified organic skin, hair, and health products,” says Kris. “You can buy them from locally based site organicglow.com.”


Kris’ Cross:
“My sister brought me this cross from Poland,” says Kris. “We rely a lot on our faith, and I keep it in the kitchen window to remind me that I am not in control.”



Old Soles:
“I’m a shoe whore,” Bob says. “I have a lot of old Vans that I’ll probably never throw away.”


Picture of Happiness:
“I found this photo of my mom at age three in a pure joy moment and decided, ‘We’re going to start this clothing line to find out how to live in that joy daily,” says Kris.



Cool Rides:
“We go out to surf whenever we can. I can’t wait for the day the kids can wake up and surf with me before school and work,” notes Bob.



Permanent Vacation:
“We got these tattoos on our one-year anniversary trip to Asheville. We arrived with intricate ring designs and the guy was like, ‘This is my first day, I can only do lines.’”


The Basics:

Yard Art: “We love our backyard because it is what we envisioned for life with our kids,” says Bob. “We live out there, playing, having cookouts, and camping.”
Couple Counseling: After 16 years together, Kris and Bob agree on their marriage advice: “Always talk about everything.”
On the Catwalk: “To run a business when you have kids is a huge commitment—we often work until 2 a.m. because they’re asleep—so watching our hard work be so well-received at CFW was emotional, like 12 Christmases all at once,” recalls Kris.
