Oscar de la Renta fans will soon be able to buy vintage dresses from television shows like “Sex and the City” and “Succession” as the luxury fashion house moves further into the resale business.

Since last November, the designer has been curating looks from past runway collections in its secondhand shop, Encore. Pre-owned clothes are sold on consignment and the company authenticates, restores, and ships the items with an eye toward giving customers the same level of service as in its brick-and-mortar stores.
