Behind the Seams: Buru x Kelly Golightly!



 A Love Letter to Mod Style and a Colorful Life

Kelly Lee is a stand out for those who adore the blend of the vintage Palm Springs lifestyle and modern flair. Founder of Kelly Golightly, a style guide designed for contemporary Audrey Hepburns, she offers a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration for living a life brimming with style, color, and charm. With their shared love of mod and color, Kelly was high on Morgan’s list of creatives for collaboration. When meeting for the first time at Buru’s Big 10 Anniversary Celebration, these two California transplants hit it off, and Buru x Kelly Golightly was born. Here's a closer look at what makes Kelly Golightly and her creator, Kelly Lee, so captivating and a look behind the seams of the collab. 

Kelly has established herself as a style icon, earning a place on Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed List and being named one of Rachel Zoe’s blogger crushes. Her eye for style, combined with her expertise, makes her a sought-after figure in the fashion world.

Palm Springs, with its historic mid-century modern architecture and its legacy as a playground for Hollywood's elite, provides the perfect canvas for Kelly's creative expressions. This city mirrors the theme of Kelly Golightly. The Buru x Kelly Golightly collaboration pays homage to this iconic landscape and its influence on contemporary style. Domestically produced in Buru’s downtown Los Angeles factory, the vintage textiles and trims nod to the classic silhouettes of the mod era, making each piece a statement in itself.

The launch event for the Buru x Kelly Golightly Collection was a reflection of the vibrancy and spirit of the collaboration. Set against a backdrop of bubbles, friends and poolside dancing, the event was a true celebration of Morgan and Kelly’s shared aesthetic. It was an evening that toasted fashion, creativity, and the joy of bringing visions to life.

We can’t mention Kelly without mention of her husband, photographer, Fred Moser, fondly referred to as “Fred Baby.” They not only share their life but also their creative vision. The duo famously recreated the Slim Aarons' "Poolside Gossip" photo, bringing their modern take to the iconic image.

At its core, the Buru x Kelly Golightly Collection is a testament to the timeless appeal of mod style, where old-world glam meets modern-day creativity. Kelly and Morgan have created a collection that speaks to the adventurous spirit of the modern-day Audrey Hepburns of the world, encouraging them to embrace life with style, color, and unabashed joy.

The entire Buru x Kelly Golightly collection goes live, exclusively on, this Saturday, March 23rd at 9:30 AM EST.
