If you largely ignored Fashion Week, then we have the outfit for you:

The jumpsuit.

Two jumpsuits popped up last week outside Lincoln Center, as it enjoyed its last year at the center of the fanfare.

They were worn by the independent designers Abigail Glaum-Lathbury and Maura Brewer, who go by the name the Rational Dress Society.

Their project, Jumpsuit, presents a tempting proposition: “What if you never had to choose another outfit again?”

They’re selling the outfits, available in black and white, for $150, online.

The designers describe it as “an experiment in counter fashion” and “an alternative to the relentless forward motion of fashion.”

Ms. Glaum-Lathbury and Ms. Brewer held their banner aloft for a few minutes, as well-heeled guests and paparazzi crossed the plaza outside Lincoln Center.

Then they were shooed away by guards.
