Google Searches for Style With Potential Warby Parker Partnership

People wearing Google’s glasses are transported to a strange new world in which the internet is always in their line of sight.

In a sign of how acute the challenge is for Google, the company is negotiating with Warby Parker, an e-commerce startup that sells trendy eyeglasses, to help it design more fashionable frames, according to two people briefed on the negotiations who weren’t authorized to speak publicly.
