Welcome to ICYMI*, In case you missed it, our weekly debrief of the trends we spotted first making it to the mainstream and the thought-provoking insights you need to know, curated by our in-house experts. 

TikTok wants its users to know they are ‘more than their weight’. From May 2024, videos promoting weight loss treatments such as Ozempic will be restricted to the extent that some creators specialising in how to lose weight could risk a ban.

As of now, kids and teens can freely access all content relating to weight loss drugs and the hashtag #Ozempic has accumulated more than 1.4bn views. On Disney+, Oprah Winfrey’s tv special, Shame, Blame and the Weight Loss Revolution, features Maggie Ervie, a teenager who started taking semaglutide weight-loss drugs, aged 13. In January 2024, the American Academy of Pediatrics accepted the use of Wegovy (another semaglutide medicine) for adolescents, after the Food and Drug Administration approved it for people aged 12 and older. Is this type of medication the solution to global childhood obesity?

#WeSawItComing: Automotive Accommodation

Italian automaker Pagani is venturing into architecture with its first-ever Pagani Residences. Located in Miami, it comprises 70 luxury flats with waterfront views, spacious terraces and premium amenities such as 24/7 concierge services, a private marina and a rooftop pool. Scheduled for completion in 2027, the project promises to extend the Pagani experience with meticulous attention to detail.

Back in 2022, our Automotive Accommodation microtrend report predicted premium car makers exploring branded living by entering the property market and opening their own residences. Since then, Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz and Bentley have all announced branded accommodation ventures.
