SENREVE x Katherine Barkman

by Sara Wennerstrom / May 28, 2023

Today we're revealing the latest SENREVE Summer 2023 campaign, in partnership with two of San Francisco Ballet’s brightest stars. We worked with photographer Daniel Glazer to capture the beauty of movement in one of San Francisco’s most unique locations, Flora Grubb Gardens. This season we were inspired by the timeless elegance and artistry of ballet. Many of the philosophies behind ballet are ones that we use in the design of our bags: form, body, space, beauty, time, and energy.

Meet Katherine Barkman

Katherine Barkman is an American ballet soloist with the San Francisco Ballet. She previously spent four seasons dancing principal roles with The Washington Ballet and three years as principal dancer of Ballet Manila. She is regarded as a role model and one of the rising stars of her generation. She has been widely praised for her impeccable technique, effortless buoyancy, remarkable balances, and the creative passion which she munificently infuses into every role she portrays onstage.

In addition to her pure talent and passion, Katherine’s “deepest wish — to positively affect people’s lives through dance — has guided her every turn.” She is a true embodiment of the SENREVE Octopi - a woman who does it all - and empowers other women to reach their full potential.  

Get to Know Katherine

Small bag or large tote?

Large Tote.

What’s your favorite season?

When are you most productive during the day?
The morning.

How would you describe your personal style?
Down to earth, but elegant.

What does “Own Your Cadence” mean to you?
It means honoring the faster tempos along with the slower ones… and not letting one be better or worse than the other. If I’m going fast, then I am going to go fast. If it’s time for me to slow down, then I have to accept and honor that. It’s more about going with the flow.

What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
To forge my own path. Know that whatever I do, it has to come from a place of complete authenticity and not from an outside source.
