Tina Knowles Just Shed Some Interesting Light On Beyoncé's Name Choices

Since Beyoncé broke the Internet last week with the first picture of her newborn twins, there is one topic that has caused more conversation than others. We are, of course, talking about Beyoncé and Jay Z’s name choices.

However, thanks to Tina Knowles and her entertaining Instagram account, we have some insight.

Firstly, B’s mum clarifyed for us that the babies names are Sir Carter and Rumi Carter, not, as some had assumed, Sir Carter Carter and Rumi Carter. And for anyone questioning the gender of the twins, Tina confirmed once and for all that they are a girl and a boy.

The new grandmother also explained the meaning behind the name ‘Rumi’. Tina shared a selection of quotes from the 13th century Persian poet Rumi, highlighting in the caption that ‘Rumi’ it’s not only beautiful but logical.

‘Love number three… Sometimes we are the reason we can’t find love!! We have to work on ourselves first to be whole,’ Tina wrote.

This isn’t the first time Beyoncé has taken inspiration from a writer. The singer famously collaborated with British poet Warsan Shire on her album Lemonade, and sampled Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi’s TED talk We Should All Be Feminists in her song, Flawless.

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.
