Mara Hoffman Is Making Rainy Days a Whole Lot Better
The bright hues and poppy prints from your favorite Mara Hoffman bikinis and caftans have a new gig this spring. The designer teamed up with Clos du Bois wines to launch the ultimate rainy day accessory: The Closbrella, a printed umbrella with a neoprene sleeve that doubles as a wine tote. The best part? Purchase of the Closbrella ($48) includes a bottle of Clos du Bois's crisp California Chardonnay.
Hoffman, a longtime fan of the brand, says the sweet chard is a staple for warm weather entertaining. "I love pairing it with fish when I have friends and family over, especially in the warmer months when we can all sit outside," she tells InStyle. "If I’m making small bites or appetizers, it’s great with sautéed prawns, grilled octopus, any kind of fresh ceviche, or grilled veggies. For a real treat, it makes a great base for white sangria." Bottoms up!
