Helena Bonham Carter is launching her own line of luxury lingerie.The 'Planet of the Apes' star, noted for her quirky fashion sense, is preparing to launch her sexy clothing range Pantaloonies at London's exclusive department store Harrods.She revealed: "I woke up on my 35th birthday and thought, 'I've got to do something other than act'. What doesn't sit will with me is waiting for others to employ me. Plus using me always as the raw material. It's nice to make something out of something that isn't oneself."The Oscar-nominated actress teamed up with swimwear designer Samantha Sage to create the new line and their first collection is called Bloomin' Bloomers and features a selection of Victorian camisoles, mop caps and bloomers.The charity-conscious brunette is also planning on helping others through the success of the venture and a percentage of proceeds will be donated to United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
