IRVING, Texas — 7-Eleven Inc. is debuting a limited-edition apparel collection with Overtime and Easy Otabor, a designer, entrepreneur and art curator.
The collection, Overtime x 7-Eleven curated by Easy Otabor, is inspired by “Game to Eleven,” the phrase popularized by pickup basketball. The streetwear-meets-sportswear designs feature the convenience-store chain’s products such as Slurpees and Big Gulps intertwined with basketball themes. Included in the collection are 7-Eleven and Speedway-branded hoodies, T-shirts, hats and mesh shorts.
“We’re back with yet another collab for Brainfreeze Season that we think our customers are going to love,” said Marissa Jarratt, 7-Eleven executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “We can’t wait to see how our customers sport these designs both in and out of stores.”
The collection will be released on Aug. 5 at 1:00 p.m. ET at 7-Eleven.com/lp/Overtime. Customers can win the full capsule by purchasing select products at 7-Eleven, Speedway or Stripes stores as part of the retailer’s weekly giveaways through Brainfreeze Season.
“Overtime was built on creating an impactful digital community and brand, while Easy is one of the most influential people amongst art, streetwear and overall taste. 7-Eleven and Speedway are staples in our communities so partnering together on this collection just made sense,” said Tyler Rutstein, vice president and general merchandise manager at Overtime and OTE. “We wanted to create something that was bold and playful with a nod to each of our respective styles.”
Otabor added, “7-Eleven is one of the most recognized brands in the world, and to partner with them on such an iconic project is an honor. Integrating 7-Eleven’s renowned branding with my personal style resulted in a collection that people of all ages would enjoy, with a touch of nostalgia.”
