It does not chip easily, but it's not indestructible either. I personally prefer the classic version, just because it will undoubtably endure the taste of time. These seasonal versions are more of a fad in my opinion.I am deciding which Mini Pochette I want to buy. I am not sure how durable the pain is going to be on the LE ones. If the paint chipped off the canvas, let say DE canvas, will the DE canvas show or it's just a blank canvas?
