Explanation:
I can only imagine that these are areas reserved for the sales personnel to which the public has no access.

Explanation:
Could this mean an area which is not used for the sale of merchandise, where merchanised would not be displayed (i.e. fitting rooms)?

Private boutique


Explanation:
Usually, the area of a shop known as "privè vendita" is a private area accessible only by the single client (usually a VIP with lots of cash to spend) and the sales assistant. Obviously in a lot of cases shops close to the public when a super VIP is on a spree, however there are shops where there is a private area for such clients so they can choose, try on and spend in their own privacy.
