On September 12, a stylish group gathered at Space519 to celebrate the launch of the Karl x Melissa capsule collection (Melissa is a Brazilian shoe designer; he's Karl. As in Lagerfeld.) Amid a lot of Moët and shoe-trying-on, we got to thinking: if we could design anything with Karl, what would it be?

We couldn't think of an answer right away—it was much, much later that we thought of fancy cat-food dishes—so we asked around. Here's what eight enterprising guests had to say. And Julia Cuddihy Van Nice, why didn't we think of that?
