Beyoncé's Mom Drops Hints About The Origin Of New Baby Rumi's Name

Beyoncé and Jay-Z recently welcomed two bundles of joy, in case you’ve been living in a vacuum devoid of modern news. Last week, they revealed their twins to the world with an extravagant photo that promptly shattered the internet. You know the one.

Daughter Rumi and son Sir are only one month old, but fans can’t get enough of them. That’s where their grandmother Tina Knowles, the woman who blessed us with Bey, comes in.

On Sunday (July 16), she dropped major hints about Rumi’s name, sharing quotes from an ancient Persian poet named Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi — Rumi for short. He was born in 1207, but his words have lived on for centuries.

“This is poetry by the [13th] century poet ‘Rumi’ it’s not only beautiful but logical,” Tina wrote, adding, “Sometimes we are the reason we can’t find love!! We have to work on ourselves first to be whole❤️”

Did Bey and Jay-Z name their second daughter after this Rumi? We can’t be certain, but it would make sense; the Carters have always been a family of wordsmiths. Big sister Blue Ivy is already flexing her rap skills on dad’s 4:44, after all. Perhaps little Rumi will be next.

This Bangkok-Based, Beyoncé-Approved Label Turns Dusty Old T-Shirts Into Fashion Treasures

Vintage T-shirts have become a somewhat ubiquitous styling tool. Once an exciting flea market find, old concert and sports team tees are now everywhere, from the fakes at fast fashion outposts to the pricey kind hung on vintage-specific racks lining the specialty stores. While there are certainly still plenty of throwback tees to discover, fashion types may be feeling a bit of fatigue when it comes to the category. Designer “Best” Patipat Chaipukdee is hoping to combat that with his Bangkok-based label Dry Clean Only. He travels between Asia and the U.S. hunting for old T-shirts, most of which were made in the '80s and include wildlife motifs, Nike and Adidas logos, and the names of various sports teams. He mashes these together and gives them new silhouettes, decorates them with Italian lace and fur, and fashions them with hand-beaded embroideries from India.

Chaipukdee started his label in 2010 after leaving fashion school a couple of years ahead of his graduation date. He had little to no financial backing, and thus, had to get crafty with found and deadstock fabric and materials. This, however, gave his designs character. As he explains, “I want something that is unique, but I don't want to make clothes the way other people do, by buying proper fabrics and making patterns—it's about using mass-produced or forgotten materials to create one-of-a-kind fashion.” After several years of building up his business, the designer was picked up by an impressive lineup of international stores including Colette in Paris and Crayon in Tokyo, and last year, Beyoncé was spotted wearing one of his creations to a show at Madison Square Garden.

Now, Chaipukdee is moving away from his signature tops and working on a collection of dresses, with more clothing categories to follow. Can you own an entire wardrobe made from dusty old vintage tees? Thanks to Dry Clean Only, it's a very cool possibility.
