As Google and other companies begin to build wearable technology like glasses and watches, an industry not known for its fashion sense is facing a new challenge — how to be stylish. […] In a sign of how acute the challenge is for Google, the company is negotiating with Warby Parker, an e-commerce start-up that sells trendy eyeglasses, to help it design more fashionable frames…
