Is Google working with Warby Parker?Google is said to be working out a deal with fashion eyeglass retailer Warby Parker to make frames for its new Google Glass product.

Stories on TechCrunch and in the New York Times note sources who claim that Google is negotiating with the frames-peddling startup to help it come up with a line fashionable frames for Google’s decidedly non-fashionable Glass product.

Google Glass is nearly a reality for consumers, as the company has announced it would be accepting applications for the first trial run of users who will be allowed access to purchase an early version of Google Glass.

If Google and Warby Parker do come together to design a fashionable frame for the glasses, it will certainly increase the likelihood of fast adoption in the marketplace. Up until now, the current iteration of Google Glass looked more like something out of a science-fiction magazine than a stylish accessory that anyone would want to wear.

Both Google and Warby Parker have denied that they are collaborating on any venture together.
