Let’s hear from the man himself:  

“I drew inspiration from the cold climate of the beloved region I live in, Quetzaltenango in Guatemala. This cool-toned shade evokes feelings of confidence, courage, extroversion and originality,” says Jimmy. “I am very happy to receive this award and I’m so grateful for being here.”
